FarmStart aims to encourage and support a new generation of entrepreneurial, ecological farmers.
There are many challenges facing new farmers, but there are also many exciting opportunities. The new farmers we support bring skills, connections and passion that can lead to innovation and renewal.
These new ecological farmers are cultivating a real, sustainable and delicious future for their own families, our communities and our farmlands.
FarmStart is a proud recipient of a Regional Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence which recognizes the innovative contributions of producers, processors, agri-food organizations and rural communities in Ontario.
FarmStart was also chosen as one of Tides Canada’s Top Ten in 2011.

The Tides Top 10 inspire people to take action, to think in new ways and to make the world a better place.
