Supporting Next Generation Farmers
In Canada, the average age of farmers continues to increase. As of 2021, the average age of Canadian farmers was 56, with a median age of 58. This means there will be a major transition to a younger generation of farmers tasked with feeding our communities. We understand this importance from coming from a multi-generational farm ourselves.
Our mission is to help the next generation of farmers succeed in their goals through innovative solutions including infrastructure, tools, equipment, consultation and mentorship.
