Farm Transition Appreciation Day (FTADay) took place on January 10, 2023.
Over the next 10 years, 75% of farms across Canada will change hands.
FTADay was created to encourage and celebrate the progress Canada’s farmers are making to secure the future of farming in Canada. It is a groundswell movement to motivate farmers to start, restart and keep going with farm succession through inspirational stories shared on social media and live events. And, the one day of the year when we can come together to help farmers through their farm transition journey.
The New Year is the perfect time to celebrate our successes and take action to keep farms healthy for generations to come.
