Growing Your Farm Profits
COVID-19 (Coronavirus): OSCIA wishes to ensure the health and safety of all participants and staff. EFFECTIVE MARCH 17, and until further notice, all Environmental Farm Plan, Growing Your Farm Profits and Biosecurity workshops have been suspended.
Visit ontariosoilcrop.org for updates. Online options are still available (e.g., electronic EFP) for those that were looking to update. A workshop leader will be in contact with preregistered participants.
Growing Your Farm Profits (GYFP) is the place to start improving your business and by combining self-assessment and action plan development with a range of cost-share funding through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
In this 2-day workshop, an experienced Workshop Leader will help you review your farm management practices and prioritize your business goals. The workshop is open to new and established producers.
Farm families and management teams are encouraged to attend the workshop together. You will not be asked to share personal or financial details of your operation and there is no charge to attend.
After attending the workshop, you have the opportunity to meet with your workshop leader one-on-one to review and refine your action plan. You can then access cost-share funding for advisory services and skills development opportunities to achieve your business goals.
There are two ways you can complete your Growing Your Farm Profits:
1. In-person, 2-day workshop (recommended)
