Are you a farmer, agricultural business owner or resident interested in learning about current trends in innovation in the agricultural sector?

If so, are you interested in learning more about resources that are available to you, listening to speakers and networking with local members of the agricultural community?

Don't miss this opportunity to hear and exchange ideas at the North Middlesex Innovation in Agriculture event.

The Municipality of North Middlesex is inviting local farmers and agricultural business owners from the region to learn about the latest innovations businesses are implementing to stay competitive in today’s economy.

We are excited to present innovative, agriculturally-focused speakers from the region who are currently thinking outside of the box with respect to emerging trends and new technologies to share new insights in their fields. An important priority identified in our Economic Development Strategy is to support local farmers and agricultural business owners. We are hoping information presented at this event and the networking opportunity following will be a valuable step towards meeting the needs of this sector in our municipality.
