We're home!

After 7 flights, 2 countries, 5 hotels, 4 different buses and a dozen or more farm visits, we are home again! What an adventure we all shared over the last 12 days. We experienced so much as a class, whether it was learning new leadership skills, to eating crickets, to meeting with fellow Canadians working in Vietnam. We also have a new appreciation for how certain foods are grown – like bananas, coffee, tea, coconuts, rice and pepper (to name a few); foods that many of us enjoy…

Thai Agri-Tourism

Today we left the big city lights of Bangkok for the countryside. How refreshing to step out of the bus onto Baan Susan Chamchoen Farm and meet the owner Mr Somsak and his wife. With great passion and enthusiasm he toured us through his mixed fruit farm, combining agro tourism with fruit production and 20 value-added products. The King, a great supporter of agriculture, had advised all farmers to diversify. As such, Mr Somsak has a unique intercropping system combining  banana, coconut and…

Temples and Snakes and Boats...Oh My!

Battling through the chaos and heat of Bangkok, Class 16 spent a full day experiencing some of the interesting sites in the city.

Our first stop of the morning was at the Red Cross Snake Farm, nestled on a 'quieter' side street right in Bangkok. The Snake Farm is a part of the Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute and the Thai Red Cross Society. In the early 1900s, one of the King’s daughters died of rabies. At that time, there were facilities around the world that had made…

Let’s get to work on ag and rural

Queen’s Park will have an interesting array of veteran and new politicians when the PC party takes the reigns under Premier-designate Doug Ford and his new majority government. There are a number of returning MPPs but most of the 124 politicians are first timers, including representatives of new, mostly urban, ridings. That provides a great opportunity for the Ontario Federation of Agriculture and our 38,000 members.

Meet Prof. Asim Biswas (sustainable soil management)

Asim Biswas is a professor in the School of Environmental Sciences who researches sustainable soil management for the benefit of crops and the environment.

OFA ready to distribute economic development with new PC government

OFA congratulates Doug Ford and the Progressive Conservative party on forming the next government in Ontario. “We look forward to getting to know new MPPs across the province, and connecting with returning politicians to continue the conversations we started during the election period about the needs of the agricultural sector and our rural communities,” says Keith Currie, president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA).

Act Now to tell your candidates why ag and rural matter

We’re almost there. Election day looms for Ontarians as both candidates and party leaders vie for our votes. We, as Ontario voters, have watched the debates, read party platforms and talked to local candidates to see for ourselves who will represent us at Queen’s Park. And, if you haven’t already, it’s soon time to make a decision.

What does Ontario ag look like to you?

The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) knows how proud our members are of their farms, families and agricultural communities. That’s why we’re launching the OFA’s Proud to Farm photo contest. We’re asking members and their families to share their views of Ontario agriculture in a little friendly competition.

Get ready for the 'internet of cows': Farmers use technology to shake up agriculture

Get ready for the "internet of cows." Generations of farmers have relied on knowledge and family expertise to grow food, but the sector is set for a surge of disruption at the hands of made-in-Canada artificial intelligence-powered systems. AI is now helping farmers across the country to increase yields, save costs and minimize environmental damage. Instead of spreading fertilizer across acres of fields or spraying entire orchards with herbicides, they can now target their efforts for maximum effect.

Ag organizations prioritize mental health

Farm Credit Canada (FCC) and the Do More Agriculture (DMA) foundation have teamed up to promote mental health and wellness in the ag community.
