Farming and the Environment

Farmers are closely linked to the environment.  They depend on a healthy environment for their livelihoods, and recognize that environmentally sustainable practices are imperative for sustainable businesses.  

Farmers on PEI follow regulations unique to our province such as strict crop rotations, establishment of buffer zones around waterways, and natural methods for conserving soil health.

Farm & Food Care will work together with farmers, commodity organizations, the government, environmental groups, and educational institutions to encourage farming practices that are environmentally sustainable.
