Presentation- Commonwealth Agriculture Conference

 

Rosy Farms owner, Andrew, has the honor to speak at this conference, where it is only the 4th time it has been held in Canada. Speaking on a panel of 3 about how young entrepreneurs are taking over agriculture, called: Bees, Berries & Beer. Andrew will be presenting for 20 minuets on how he started a farm from nothing, city sicker to farmer, what new opportunities are open to young farmers and how new crops are expanding our agriculture diversity.

It is going to be a conference to remember. For more information: Commonwealth Agriculture Conference

Conference Bio:

Andrew, a city slicker turned haskap fruit farmer, has built his dream and is developing a new industry, founder of the Haskap Alberta Association and a founding shareholder of North 49 Fruit Corp- sales/marketing of Canadian fruit.

Born and raised in Edmonton, Andrew achieved a diploma in Production Horticulture at Olds College, AB, before entering the trades, now working as a Suncor Execution Coordinator. All his profits seed into the expense of starting a haskap farm from scratch, buying 76 acres in Alcomdale, AB, planting a 26 acre orchard, and currently planning a small processing center.

Large commodity farms have opened up opportunities for specialty growers, aided by the ease of social media and the support of the Alberta Government, creating market diversify with the hopes of long-term sustainability.

Customers want connections: connection to their food, the land, and the people growing. Andrew is building this connection because he strongly believes in haskap fruit, in the power of local, and is driven to prove that the small family farm is alive and growing.
