About Our Local
Our chapter is made up a diverse network of new, through to multi-generational experienced livestock, vegetable, crop, and value-added producers as well as non-farming associate members of homesteaders and urban/peri-urban/rural farm-advocates.
Why You Should Join Us
Our chapter is made up a diverse network of new, through to multi-generational experienced livestock, vegetable, crop, and value-added producers. We are a dedicated voluntary group, working with small and medium family farms to preserve the integrity of our rural farming fabric. Local 310 offers farmer-to-farmer support to tackle the issues facing Lanark County farmers.
Not a Farmer?
NFU Local 310 is a diverse group of farmers and farm advocates. Together we discuss, educate, and tackle political and operational challenges facing Lanark County farmers, producers, homesteaders, and non-farming urban/peri-urban/rural community members.
Our meetings are a time to gather and socialize, discuss NFU policy and events, bring forward political, social, and environmental issues local farmers are facing, share farm experiences, create strategies or share resources to tackle current issues facing Lanark County and the wider community of Ontario farmers.
Details coming soon!
