THINKFARM provides introductory level resources for starting a farm in Nova Scotia. This website has information on defining your farm vision, business planning and regulations which apply to new farm businesses. It is a good starting point before accessing advisory services from the Department of Agriculture regional offices or Perennia Field Services staff.
The THINKFARM Facebook page and electronic mailing list provide information about training workshops and events of interest to new and aspiring farmers in the province.
THINKFARM was developed under Growing Forward 2 – an investment by federal, provincial, and territorial governments.
