About

Who We Are

Engaging more with consumers is a priority initiative for BC Agriculture Council (BCAC) and its members. We ♥ Local BC celebrates BC agriculture, raises awareness of BC's food system and connects you with local farmers and ranchers.

We ♥ Local is a community-wide movement supporting our local BC family-owned farms and food businesses. When we support our local food system, we’re getting behind quality food, care for the environment, as well as our local communities and economy.


Purpose

We ♥ Local BC aims to create direct connections between producers and consumers and to strengthen the links within B.C.'s food system.


What is local?

We ♥ Local BC is a collaborative initiative undertaken by BC Agriculture Council and its membership, who in turn generate 96% of the farm gate sales in B.C. As the collective voice for agriculture in B.C., we define local as all food and agricultural products grown and raised in British Columbia.
