Celebrate Agriculture Week with Innovative Farmers

Monday, September 28, 2015

The latest research from the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation profiles nine innovative farmers across the Golden Horseshoe to better understand what makes for successful farm businesses. Based on interviews with farmers in various sectors (from greenhouse to on-farm markets to livestock), the report explains how farm operators are managing their farms in a way that translates into financial success and long term viability.

The findings of this report will be shared during Agriculture Week at the Halton Region Museum. Participants are invited to hear from the report’s author, Jim Wheeler, and three of the profiled farm operators. They will be joined by Ryan Koeslag from the Agri-Food Management Institute who will outline findings of a recent Ipsos Reid study that documents the financial benefits of various business management practices.

Copies of the report will be available at the event.

The workshop will take place on October 9th, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with lunch to follow, at the Halton Regional Museum, 5181 Kelso Rd, in Milton.

Please RSVP by October 5th via the Eventbrite page to reserve your spot. There is no cost to attend.
