Event Description

Would you like to learn more about programs and resources in agricultural business, risk management, and innovation, including Growing Forward 2?  Are you interested in exploring the potential and pitfalls of various crop alternatives for your farm?

  • Sure you can grow these things, but is there a market and do you want to be in it? Are you looking for alternative crop opportunities to diversify your operation? Talk to the specialists with expertise in specialty crops, vegetables, fruit, tree nuts, industrial crops, irrigation, and more.
  • What programs are you eligible for and how do you access them? Is there support under Growing Forward 2 to help area farm businesses with innovation or transition?  Business specialists with OMAF and MRA – those who know the programs inside and out – will be on hand to steer you through.

Drop in on Wednesday, January 22 to talk one-on-one with OMAF & MRA business and crop specialists.  Browse our displays, resources, and online tools.  The Crop and Business Showcase will be at the Roma Club in Leamington from 9 to 11 am and at the Countryview Golf Course near Chatham from 2 – 4 pm.
