Hi everyone, my name is Daegan and I am a video producer from Hamilton, ON. I'm currently looking for a large wheat field in which to shoot a short film. If you know anybody growing wheat this year, I would greatly appreciate any leads! Thank you so much.

How much were you trying to borrow from FCC?
Did you prepare a business plan that showed the purchase would cashflow?
What were you planning to grow?
I would find an experienced farmer who knows how to present info to FCC and ask for their help.
Good luck and keep trying.
I have a friend who recently bought some land in the Ottawa area and is in the beginning phase of her farm. She told me that the Ontario Grants Book has lots of options for funding to entice young farmers in that area. Im not sure if you've looked into this avenue to finance your project, but it may be worth a try.
It's definitely not an easy business to get into, but obviously you know this. It seems like youve got the drive and the clientele, so best of luck to you!
Ive been trying for 5 years to convince fcc to work with me to buy a farm. I have resorted to selling 55 acres of my 4th generation inheritance to finance the purchase of more land and assets. So even with $300k for a down payment they balk, tell me the only farms they will finance are in northern ontario, manitoba, ect. I grew up south of ottawa, farm south of ottawa and i want to stay in the area! There are great local and commercial markets here, i make money on my farm. Fcc is full of bullshit
