Big Step Forward in Support for New Farmers!
Farms at Work is extremely pleased that the federal Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agrifood has recently released its Report, and has included a specific recommendation for support for new farmers in the next Agricultural Policy Framework:
"Recommendation 18: The Committee recommends that the Government work with stakeholders to support the next generation of farmers by improving farm start-up conditions, succession planning and the transfer of knowledge to help young farmers and beginning farmers start their business."

Farms at Work, along with other organizations across the country, worked hard last fall to prepare a consensus brief that was presented to the federal government in order to inform and recommend on this initiative. See our joint brief here
We are working for the future of farming every day!
