While the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair remains cancelled for 2020 , there will be Agricultural Food Competitions. In a year where more and more Canadians are turning to their own backyards and home kitchens for reliable food, 2020 is the perfect year to showcase home bakers, canners, picklers, food processors and more, both new and veteran homemakers alike.
The Royal will be holding the following competitions:
· Butter Tarts
· Cheese & Butter
· Honey, Beeswax & Mead
· Hot Sauce
· Ice Cream
· Jams & Jellies
· Maple Syrup & Maple Products
· Ready-To-Eat Meat Snacks
Winners will receive their customary Royal Rosette, and The Royal is developing a virtual platform to showcase all of the Champions and their successes. Sponsors of The Royal’s Food Competitions, to date, include Metro, Dairy Farmers of Ontario and Roothams Gourmet Preserves.
Competition Books that outline all qualifications, entry procedures and prizing are available now at https://www.royalfair.org/agriculture/exhibitors/
