The Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario (EFAO) supports farmers to build resilient ecological farms and grow a strong knowledge-sharing community.
Established in 1979 by farmers for farmers, EFAO is a membership organization that focuses on farmer-led education, research and community building. EFAO brings farmers together so they can learn from each other and improve the health of their soils, crops, livestock and the environment, while running profitable farm businesses. Learn More >
Join us at our 2020 Conference
NOV. 30 – DEC. 5, 2020
Read and watch Ryan Spence and Isabelle Spence-Legault’s farmer-led research trial where they tested whether a crimped cover crop of rye and hairy vetch reduced tillage, cultivation and irrigation for their fall broccoli crop in northern Ontario.
Hear from inspiring Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) farmers and farm leaders at this year’s Virtual EFAO Conference!
If there has ever been a year when we needed to take pause, reconnect, plant our roots, and reach for new heights together, this is it.
