FarmStart is a charitable organization that provides training to a new generation of farmers. FarmStart provides someone with an interest in farming with a small test piece of land to see if farming is for them. But a piece of land alone doesn’t make the farmer. In the second and third years of farming, new farmers are given support in a start-up farm and a farm enterprise or business. Creativity in the farming world is encouraged to corner a niche market. FarmStart has also provided seed capital to support new Canadian farmers when times are tough. FarmStart supports unique farmers that come to the field possessing many different skills and backgrounds to investigate their interest in farming.
