Sugar Beet Grow­ers in on Open Farm Days

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - NEWS - By Heather Cameron

Al­berta Sugar Beet Grow­ers will be host­ing an Open Farm Days Event at Cran­ford Acres Ltd. from 1-4 p.m. on Au­gust 17.

“We are host­ing this event to help ed­u­cate the public on where your sugar beets come from and the hard work that goes into grow­ing your sugar.,” Kelli Ober, Special Event Co­or­di­na­tor for Al­berta Sugar Beet Grow­ers, says. “You can come out to Cran­ford Acres sugar beet field to ex­plore, learn and eat some sweet treats.”

Ober says that Cran­ford Acres, which is lo­cated be­tween Coal­dale and Taber, will pro­vide demon­stra­tions on sugar pro­duc­tion and equip­ment will also be in the field for peo­ple to ex­plore. Peo­ple who visit the field, Ober says, will have am­ple op­por­tu­nity to re­ally un­der­stand where their sugar comes from. There will also be op­por­tu­ni­ties for kids to plant a sugar beet, go for a scav­enger hunt in the field, and en­joy cot­ton candy and ice cream.

“We hope ev­ery­one leaves with more in­for­ma­tion and more sugar,” Ober says.
