Beyond the Market: New Farm Initiative

From the fall of 2012 to spring 2014, the Beyond the Market initiative sought to increase the number of successful new farm entrants in the Highway 16 region from Valemount to Terrace by:

  • Developing agricultural training and internship programs;
  • Raising awareness of the region’s agricultural opportunities and challenges among potential farmers within and beyond the region;
  • Improving access to the region’s farmland.

There are already over one hundred farms in this region.
