Build a foundation to start a successful farm enterprise!

 

This program will not only provide you with critical information to start your farm, but you will meet other new and experienced farmers and become a part of the ecological agricultural community in Ontario. Educational content is geared toward new farmers, but is open to all farmers who might be curious about a certain topic, wishing to expand their farming knowledge, or in need of a refresh.

 

Because of the current health and safety protocols in effect, this program will take place online through webinars and virtual field days. 

 

 

Term 3 focuses on expanding beyond basics and building skills for a specialized farm.
