If you had to wait until chores were finished before opening gifts on Christmas morning, you might be a farm kid.
Farming is hard work year-round, and holidays are not an exception. Cows still need to be milked. Animals still need to be fed and cared for. Sometimes a water bowl needs to be thawed, or a newborn animal needs a little extra help getting a start on life. These are jobs that can’t wait, and so farmers diligently care for their livestock before taking a break to spend time with loved ones on holidays.
We look forward to continuing to work on projects and assist farmers to innovate and advance agriculture across Northern Ontario in 2019. The NOFIA office will be closed from December 24th, 2018 through to January 1st, 2019 and will open again on January 2nd, 2019. We want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year, and hope that you all have a safe and happy holiday spent with loved ones!
Thanks for another great year,
From everyone at the Northern Ontario Farm Innovation Alliance
