The New Year is a great time to start your new farm research for 2012. Take a look at the Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario website and watch for their upcoming workshops at the Guelph Organic Conference.
The EFAO offers a series of great farmer led courses and workshops on ecological farming topics. They also coordinate farm tours, kitchen table meetings, a free phone advisory service, publish a bimonthly news letter titled Ecological Farming, provide an on-farm advisory service, and publish farmers’ market prices for meat and vegetables on their website. In sum, the EFAO is a truly great reasource for any new farmer pursuing ecological agriculture.
