How can your farm benefit?
Farm Funding AvailableFarm businesses are now able to access cost-share dollars for on-farm projects such as planting windbreaks, setting up rotational grazing, fencing livestock out of sensitive areas and establishing buffers along watercourses.
“Ontario producers are proud to provide habitat for wildlife,” Allan Mol, President of the OSCIA, says. “Through SARFIP, producers are able to strengthen their businesses, with ample opportunity to complete grazing management and soil protection BMPs, while aiding Ontario’s at-risk species.”

“Farm operators have a significant role to play on this issue, and through programs like SARFIP they continue to demonstrate their interest in habitat preservation and support for sensitive native species,” Mol says.SARFIP is available now and is a first come, first served program.
