Perth County celebration of excellence of agriculture and the people who make it happen!

In November 2015, the Perth County Federation of Agriculture (PCFA) held its inaugural Harvest Gala to excellent reception. With almost 300 tickets sold, Perth County’s producers, processors, and business allies celebrated the work of the agriculture industry’s strength. The Harvest Gala was a social event to bring together those who appreciate and recognize the importance of agriculture to our economy and culture. The night was an opportunity to network, and celebrate Perth County Agriculture’s economic, social and cultural leadership!
The Perth Harvest Gala focused not only on celebration but also supporting local food and business. The services and food for the Gala were all either Perth County sourced, or product of Ontario. Therefore, an event of high quality due to all of the individuals and businesses involved.
For numerous years Perth County Federation of Agriculture has awarded an Agricultural Recognition Award. The award recognises individuals, couples, business or organizations contributions to Perth agriculture and community initiatives. We know there are many worth people/couples/business/organizations that could be recognised and we are looking for applications for this coming year’s award.   This year we will also be presenting our Continuing Education Scholarships at the Gala.
We are inviting you to save the date and join us for this year’s Harvest Gala, Saturday, November 19th at the Stratford Agri-Plex. A celebration of excellence in agriculture and the people who make it happen; by reserving a table for you, your employees, friends, family, or neighbours!
Tickets are available for $60/each or $400/table of 8.
For more Info you can contact one of our Committee Members
