Les exploitations agricoles d’aujourd’hui

Les exploitations agricoles d’aujourd’hui

La plupart des exploitations agricoles sont très différentes de celles qui existaient il y a cinquante ans. Ce qui n’a pas changé cependant, c’est l’engagement à prendre soin de la terre, des cultures et des animaux.

Corporate Farms or Family Farms?

 Over 97% of Canadian farms are family owned and many are incorporated!  Many farms are incorporated for business reasons in order to allow family members to participate in the farm business. Incorporated farms are different from publicly traded multinational corporations and businesses.

Modern agriculture is innovative!

Farmers rely on the latest scientific research to grow crops and raise animals. For example, between 2011 and 2013, about half of Canadian farms (48%) adopted at least one new type or significantly improved product, process or practice.
