Mission & Vision


To support and promote a vibrant community of ecological farmers through education, training, farmer-led research and knowledge sharing.


We envision an Ontario where thriving ecological farms are the foundation of our food system, and where agriculture protects our resources, increases biodiversity, mitigates climate change, and fosters healthy, vibrant communities.


The Ecological Farmers of Ontario has been committed to ecological and organic farming since 1979. Established to promote the advancement and understanding of ecological agricultural methods, we’re run by farmers, for farmers. We focus on farmer-to-farmer training and support to help each other make a better living growing real food while improving our soils, crops, livestock and the environment.
