Working for B.C.'s farmers and ranchers.
Leading the way together.
BC Agriculture Council is a non-profit, non-governmental council of member associations representing 28 farm associations that in turn generate 96% of provincial farm gate sales. In partnership with industry and government, BCAC delivers programs and services to ensure B.C. is the most dynamic and robust agricultural province in Canada.
We want to hear from you!
B.C. farmers and ranchers are invited to take this 15-20 minute survey and once complete, you will be entered to win one of the following:
- $350 Visa Gift Card
- $100 Visa Gift Card

This is a great opportunity to tell BCAC about your specific needs on your farm or ranch as it directly links to the overall success of the entire agriculture sector in B.C.

CONNECTING PEOPLE BACK TO FARMS
Helping farmers and ranchers tell their stories
Consumers are more interested in how their food is grown, processed and brought to market than ever before. We simply want to make sure that consumers — in an environment where they are bombarded with contradictions — have the balanced information they need about food to make informed choices that are right for them and their families.
