Being a farmer in Northern Ontario is no easy task. That's why getting together as a group to reduce costs and get jobs done more efficiently made so much sense to this company. The not-for-profit corporation began in the 1990s when the group was formed to manage Northern Ontario Heritage Fund agricultural projects from the Districts of Nipissing, Parry Sound and Sudbury. The farmers decided to continue on after these projects were completed and have enjoyed considerable success by facilitating a 400+ acre tile drainage project, and a solar initiative involving 26 installations, among other projects. As a result, there is more productive land on which crops can grow and more energy generation for additional income in the north.
