                      Celebrating Canada’s Agriculture Day
On February 23, to celebrate Canada’s Agriculture Day, We Heart Local BC collaborated with BC Ag in the Classroom (BC AITC) to offer an online cook-along event. Over 200 viewers participated, with 97% indicating they would attend a future event.
The cook-along was led by BC AITC Celebrity Chef Randall as he prepared
a BC Inspired Thai Chicken Curry and Baked Lemon Pudding with BC Blueberry Compote. Chef Randall was joined by BC farmers Lovella Schellenberg and Mickey Aylard, who cooked alongside viewers, as well as shared information about milk and egg production.
Members of the public learned about several aspects of Mickey’s farm, including how automatic milking systems work and how life on the farm is a family affair. When asked about participating in this interactive event, Mickey shared, “It was a really fun event to be a part of. I’m not normally the best cook but Chef Randall made it very fun and easy to cook a delicious meal! It was also great to answer questions the viewers had about the dairy industry - anytime we are able to share our story is a win for the industry in my books!”
