Grain Farmers of Ontario recently unveiled a new campaign to help tell the story of corn, soybeans, and wheat and the 28,000 farmers that grow them. The new campaign, Good In Every Grain aims to connect rural and urban people, with a focus on the good things these crops bring.
Good in Every Grain speaks to the good values farmers represent, the good work they do for the environment and their communities, and the good quality grain crops they grow. Beyond the farm gate, Good in Every Grain is about the good products created with corn, soybeans, and wheat, and the good contribution the grain industry makes to Ontario‚Äôs economy.
Corn, soybeans, and wheat combined contribute $9 billion in economic input, employ 40,000 people and cover over five million acres of farm land across Ontario. These grains have roots in our backyard; however, as more complex commodities the various uses of commercial grains are often unknown. The Good in Every Grain campaign is here to tell the story of these vital grains and the 28,000 Ontario farmers who grow them.
