Event Description

Growing Opportunity

November 23, 24. 2014 – Niagara Falls, Ontario.

 

The Ontario Young Farmers Forum (OYFF) attracts some of the brightest young farmers (ages 18-40) from across the province for a 2-day forum in conjunction with the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) annual convention. This year OYFF is being held in Niagara Falls, at the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel. You will have an opportunity to learn, connect, and discuss the most pressing agricultural issues we face on a daily basis. No matter where you’re from or what type of farming you do, we hope that you can find an opportunity to grow at OYFF.
