Young Farmer Resources


FarmNEXT encourages new farmers to begin farming in Nova Scotia. If you’re ready to start a commercial farming venture (with minimum annual sales of $10,000), the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture is ready to help you.  FarmNEXT provides program funds linked to Nova Scotia Farm Loan Board loans for start up and succession projects.



This website is the result of a new entrant working group and is a resource for beginning farmers in Nova Scotia.  However, it is a great resource for existing or transitioning farmers too.
