Thinking of opening a food business in Haliburton County?
Already have a food business and looking to expand or adjust?
Harvest Haliburton, one of our amazing community partners, has some great resources on their website found here. They also have a directory of local inspected commercial kitchens, and tons of research that they have completed for Haliburton County food and agriculture. Follow them on facebook to stay informed about their valuable work!
The HCFMA has been an active collaborator in a 3-year field research project to test the effectiveness of natural non-toxic remedies to control garlic pests. Both leek moth and bulb and stem nematodes have been an increasing problem causing significant crop-loss to local garlic producers. This research project, funded by the Agricultural Adaptation Council’s Growing Forward 2 program (GF-2), has engaged local growers as citizen scientists partners. The September issue of the Ontario Stewardship Network’s newsletter, Sno Squall, reports on the project and their participation. http://stewardshipnetwork.ca/sno-squall/
