What EFAO members are saying

This organization supports a passionate community of farmers striving to farm in ecological, organic and regenerative ways. The learning, friendship and inspiration gained is immeasurable.”

Angie Koch

One of our favourite things to be part of is the Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario – EFAO. Between impromptu telephone conversations with veteran farmers and presentations during organized events, we’ve gained valuable knowledge which helped us become better farmers.”

The EFAO was one of the first resources I found when we started researching regenerative agriculture. I attended some educational events and was really impressed how helpful everyone was and the real feeling of community.”
