COMMITTED TO NURTURE AND PROTECT WHAT'S MOST IMPORTANT... FROM THE GROUND UP.
PEI farmers work collaboratively with agricultural specialists to implement beneficial management practices to protect the environment and foster farm sustainability.
What happens every day across Island farms is not just farming.
On Prince Edward Island, it is SOIL FIRST FARMING.
Soil First Farming is an integrated and measurement-based series of initiatives that support the protection and enhancement of our Island's most important resource - our healthy soil.
