  • OTTAWA -- There's an emphasis on food at the 2017 Ottawa Valley Farm Show... hearty local food for only $6 a plate!

    It's all in connection with the 90th anniversary show March 14-16 at Ottawa's EY Centre. The Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association, which organizes the show, has partnered with producers' groups to offer a different special meal every day.

    On March 14, the first day of the show, the emphasis will be on beef-on-a-bun backed by Beef Farmers of Ontario; March 15, the spotlight shifts to pork-on-a-bun supported by Ontario Pork; on the last day of the show, March 16, the meal of the day is chicken-on-a-bun co-sponsored by Chicken Farmers of Canada.

    In addition, participants will be able to enjoy the usual selections at food concessions operated by the EY Centre and at Fat Less' Food Truck parked at the show entrance.

    And Foodland Ontario has provided a grant to help promote the province's many fresh food options and local food within the eastern region.

    "The $6 meals are a way of giving back to our exhibitors and visitors," said 90th Anniversary Committee Chairman Barry Dean. "We're happy to have such tremendous support this year from producers' organizations."

    And for dessert? The President's Anniversary Cookie Contest will be held March 14 at 1 p.m., hosted by Country 101.1 Radio. By decree from OVFSA president Cecil Cass, the cookie of choice is oatmeal; association directors and committee members have been told to bring in their best efforts for judging, although Cass is convinced his recipe will win out.

    "It's another way of livening up proceedings for the 90th," Dean commented, adding there will be many other non-edible attractions including live fiddling and step dancing, collectible toy tractor sale, two farm-themed bingo sessions on March 15, and auctioning of the 90th Anniversary Quilt on March 16.
