The 2012 edition of the popular “Faces of Farming” calendar has recently been revealed, and Quality Meat Packers Limited is pleased to have one of our valued pork producers’ Amy Croninand her six year old daughter, Emmy featured - not only for the month of April, but are also the cover girl models for the elegant black and white calendar showcasing the photos and stories of 13 Ontario farm families.

Amy and her husband Mike of Bluevale, have been farming and raising pigs since they got married, they are a very busy family, balancing all the responsibilities related to running the farm, being involved in the industry, and raising their family of six children which also includes Alyssa , 14; Tyler, 13; Kyle , 11; Liam, 8 and Sam, 4

Amy and Emmys photo was sponsored by Molesworth Farm Supply Inc. who is their feed supplier along with numerous other pork producers that supply Quality Meat Packers Limited.

The seventh annual “Faces of Farming” calendar is designed to introduce the public to a few of Ontario’s passionate and hardworking farmers – the people who are dedicated to producing food in this province. The calendar is produced by the Farm Care Foundation.  All of the calendar’s models are real, working Ontario farmers and hail from all parts of the province.   The artistic, black and white calendar photos, taken by Kitchener photographer Terry Scott White, are both dramatic and appealing, as are the farmers’ stories.  Complimentary copies of the calendar will be sent as Christmas presents from Ontario's farmers to politicians, grocery stores, butcher shops and media. It is sponsored by many Ontario agribusinesses and commodity groups.  Due to increasing demand, 7,000 copies have been printed, more than double the 3,000 copies printed in the first year of the calendar’s release. Again this year, the calendar will be sold at TSC stores across Ontario this year. It is also available through the Ontario Farm Animal Council and AGCare office in Guelph, by using the online order form www.ofac.org
