Agriculture Strategy

An Asset Based Community Development Plan for the Agriculture Sector

The agriculture sector with the help of the Pictou Regional Development Agency (PRDA) has undertaken the development of a rural agriculture economic development strategy. The strategy is intended to bring a wide focus to agricultural issues, in an effort to ensure that the needs and aspirations of farmers are taken in account and the future of agricultural communities throughout Pictou County is being addressed in a comprehensive manner.

The Strategic Plan has been developed through consultations with participating farmers, representing the sector. It sets out a number of goals, and an action plan to achieve them. The Plan is aimed at measures designed to foster sustainability of existing farms and to support new entrant farmers who can assist in growing the farming communities.
