People from across the Province saddled up for a countryside road trip to meet the producers who grow our food.

Last weekend, Alberta Open Farm days gave the public the opportunity to see what life is like on the family farm. Over 100 farms from across the province opened their doors to offer educational tours and fun activities relating to agriculture.

One of the ranches who participated in the event was Trails End Beef in Nanton, AB.

Rachel Herbert, who runs the ranch with her family, says they could've have asked for a better day.

"Every time I would look out into the yard, you could see people practicing on a roping dummy, and the horses were a huge hit. We have a little white pony who I think was the star of the day. His name's Bingo, and he got lots of hugs and visits right there at the side of the fence to visit with everyone, so that was pretty nice."

Herbert says, they also had a market set up where they sold their grassfed beef and other local products.

Trails End Beef has been participating in the event for five years now, and will hopefully be hosting the event next year as well.
