Policy & Issues

The Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario (EFAO) promotes agricultural practices that honour ecological principles while enhancing the health of soil, crops, livestock and communities. Our membership is made up of over 500 farmers who operate both large, modern, commercial-scale farms and smaller diversified units as well as gardeners, researchers, journalists, academics and consumers. By providing practical education in ecological farming and supporting agricultural policies that are sustainable, equitable and ecological EFAO upholds the principles and values of ecological farmers in Ontario.
