Thank you farmers for ensuring our communities have access to safe and nutritious food!

We’ve pulled together this list of resources from across the internet to help you and your farm business during this time. Please reach out if you have other ideas for ways we can support you, or if you have other great resources to add to this list.

Farm on! Farmers are heroes!

Resources for Farmers:

1. Add your farm to the U-Map

Add yourself to the U-Map so consumers can find your farm, or ensure your current listing is up to date. Consider including any pickup or delivery information in your listing.

2. Regional Facebook Groups

Connect with others in your area for support, brainstorming sessions, volunteers, or to promote your farm business:

British Columbia:

Alberta:

Saskatchewan:

Manitoba:

Maritimes:

3. Financial Support for Farmers & Small Business

4. Farm and Agri-Sector Resources

5. Free Educational Courses

6. Farm Workers

7. Sales and Distribution

8. Health and Wellbeing

9. Business Risk Management


Are there other ways we can support you?

For example, facilitating a google hangout with farmers in different regions to brainstorm solutions? Other ways we can advocate for farmers? Let us know your thoughts and ideas. Email community@youngagrarians.org.

Sharing Positive Stories

We’d love to share your stories of success and positivity during these challenging times. Please get in touch if you’d like to write a guest blog post, or share something on our social media.

Event Series Updates

We are monitoring the situation and how it will affect our on-farm and educational event series this season. We will attempt to move events to a digital format when possible, or postpone events for later in the summer. Sign up for our regional newsletters for updates.


Young Agrarians staff already work remotely, so we will be continuing our work (mostly) as normal. However we will be taking precautions to limit contact for site visits etc.

From all of us at Young Agrarians, we are wishing you health, safety, and access to nourishing food during this time. ♡ Please reach out if we can support you in any way.
