Harvesting Out Potential

Get ready to dig in to our semi-annual meeting being held Friday November 29th, 2013, in Truro, at the Best Western Glengarry.

Are you a young farmer who is just trying to make it work? Wondering how other young professionals deal with the books? Maybe how they made their farm succession run so smoothly… or how they work on their farm and keep their off-farm job?

This event will focus on how young people are really making it work on their farm, from real young farmers themselves. With our panel of young entrepreneurs we’ll share their experiences, their challenges and their successes.

Also, we are looking for a board member for NSYFF. Think you might be interested? Let us know, and we’ll fill you in on what to expect. We are always looking for youth ag-leaders for various roles, so if you are interested, or has some great ideas, let’s work together in making things happen!

Once again, Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture is collaborating with us for this event and Shur-Gain is sponsoring part of our networking session.

We hope to see you there!
