FarmStart is a charitable organization that provides training to a new generation of farmers.  Through a variety of training programs, Farmstart gives farmers the tools they need to build successful business that grow healthy and delicious food.   FarmStart offers on the ground training at their two Start Up farms (McVean Farm, Brampton & Landmark Farm, Hamilton) where new farmers can lease certified organic land for up to five years.  Here farmers learn their trade in a supportive community with the shared resources and the freedom to develop their own farm business. Farmer-to-farmer workshops and tours help build valuable skills from the very introductory question of “Is farming right for me?” to more advanced techniques in food growing and livestock care. FarmStart believes that if we want a diverse and resilient future for our food system – we must support more sustainable and resilient farmers to get started today!
