Nominations for 2018 Ontario Outstanding Young Farmer


Here’s your chance to recognize someone with the title of the 2018 Ontario Outstanding Young Farmer. The OYF program is designed to recognize farmers that exemplify excellence in their profession and promote the tremendous contribution of agriculture to Ontario’s economy. We are seeking nominations of farmers who contribute to their community, who seek new opportunities and who generally are assets to Ontario’s agri-food industry.
Anyone can nominate a young farmer/farm couple/farm partnership for the award.
The OYF program begins each year with the nomination of farmers at the local level. This award will be presented at the Regional Event to be held next September, in conjunction with Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in Woodstock. 
Nominees must meet the following criteria: 

  • between the ages of 18 – 39
  • be farm operators
  • derive a minimum of 2/3 of their income from farming

More information about OYF & nomination forms can be found at www.oyfontario.ca
Deadline to receive nomination forms is January 15, 2018
