Farm Networks and Associations

There are a number of farm organizations in the region including the Southern Vancouver Island Direct Farm Marketers Association, the Island Organic Producers Association, and 4H. Farmer2Farmer is another initiative, coordinated by CRFAIR, that brings farmers of all stripes together – local people, local issues, and local solutions! Farmer2Farmer is overseen by an advisory that includes representatives from many different farm and farm-related organizations. It provides networking and learning opportunities for farmers and food producers in the region through an annual conference, farm tours, and trade shows. In addition, there is a Farmer2Farmer communications network list and mentor pool available through the Farmer2Farmer website.
