Celebrating Island Grown Food

Get the Facts on the Food You Eat and Meet Your PEI Farmers

At Farm & Food Care PEI we believe in bringing Islanders together to learn about food and celebrate our local farmers.

We answer your most pressing questions about how food is grown on the Island, so you know you’re making the best choices when it comes to feeding yourself and your family. We also celebrate the PEI farmers that make it possible to eat local and share their sustainable farming practices.
