Thinking about taking your farming to the next level and processing on-farm?

Partnering with Simcoe County, we have developed the Transition Smart workshop. The focus of the Transition Smart workshop is connecting farmers with the tools to become processors.

Our programming will focus on practical preparation tools that can be immediately implemented and also on identifying feasible value-added opportunities for your farm business. Covering everything from operational planning, marketing, product development to pricing, distribution, and sales.
