The full interview with bonus material:
The Ontario government recently released a plan aimed at helping farmers. There are a host of issues challenging all those who put food on our table. The changes are aimed at the food supply chain. That is the path from farm to fork. It looks at what can be done to deal with everything from labour shortages to the use of advanced technology. It also wants to expand the number of Ontario food processors. Believe it or not, a lot of food gets shipped out of the province or to the United States. Then it gets turned into the food we eat and shipped back to Ontario.
Allan Carruthers, president of the Northumberland Federation of Agriculture, will shed some light on the government’s plans, plus bring us up to date on the federation’s activities. Here is that interview.
