AFFPA is a voluntary membership, non-profit organization representing direct
market growers. The Association is dedicated to supporting the production of
farm direct market vegetable, berry and fruit crops, bedding plants,
perennials, herbs, flowers, meats, poultry, eggs and other specialty items in
Alberta. Most AFFPA members market directly to consumers via U-Pick farms, farm
gate sales and/or through Farmers' Markets.
The AFFPA Board of Directors is comprised of seven producer members from across
Alberta. Krista Miller administrates activities of the association.
AFFPA will continue province-wide promotions in 2012. Promotions of the
association and members encourages customers to visit local farms, experience a
taste of the country and purchase the best products in Alberta.
The membership deadline is January 31, 2014 to be included in the 2013 issue:
"Come To Our Farms" guide. 45,000 copies of the guide are printed annually and
distributed across the province and to AFFPA members. The guide features travel
