Four agricultural businesses from Salmon Arm have been nominated in the We Heart Local awards.
Salmon Arm nominees are: Farmcrest Foods, Grass Roots Dairy, Gort’s Gouda Cheese Farm and Kazy Farm Organics.
Intended to support B.C. food producers, the second annual event has attracted 343 nominees in categories ranging from favourite farmers’ market to favourite local winery.
Anyone living in B.C. could nominate one or more favourites in the 15 categories. Voting is now open until Sept. 16 and can be done by visiting www.weheartlocalawards.ca.
New this year is the “vote sprint,” which means the top five category favourites have two days of quick-fire voting on Sept. 15 and 16.
By voting for your B.C. favourites, you’re automatically entered in a weekly draw to win a $100 gift card to your local farmers’ market. There is also a grand prize which will be drawn Sept. 17.
