Learn more about the issues that matter to Ontario’s 38,000 farmers in OFA’s latest issue of From the Field. OFA’s quarterly newsletter is one of the ways we communicate directly with provincial policymakers about the opportunities and the challenges facing Ontario farmers, farm businesses and rural communities.
Inside the fall 2019 issue of From the Field, OFA looks ahead to a safe and bountiful harvest season including the launch of a fall road safety campaign aimed at motorists to build awareness of slow moving vehicles and safety tips for sharing the road with large farm equipment.
OFA outlines its priorities for federal election candidates and highlights what Ontario’s agri-food sector and rural communities need from the next federal government to continue to produce prosperity for all Canadians as a major contributor to economic growth.
The newsletter features many of the challenges and opportunities currently facing our industry and rural communities, including access to reliable, high-speed internet, global trade disputes, and illegal trespassing by activists.
The latest issue recaps OFA’s agri-food requests at the Federal Provincial Territorial meeting, 2019 Field Day event at Gwillimdale Farms, welcomes new General Manager Cathy Lennon and celebrates Ontario’s upcoming Agriculture Week.
