Similar to other provinces, New Brunswick has experienced a decline in the number of farms over the past decades. However we are also experiencing a rise in the number of small farms in the province. Statistics Canada data show that in New Brunswick, the number of small farms under 10 acres has risen seven percent over the last five years.
Many people in rural communities see sustainable and regenerative farming as key to their future sustainability. RAVEN is currently planning workshops in rural areas with small farmers to learn about their priorities and ideas.
