Farming

Newcomers arriving in this region of Northeastern Ontario in the early 1900’s supported their families through farming in the summers and forestry in the winters. As the local pulp and paper mills expanded and flourished to meet increasing commercial demands, farmers turned to the more lucrative employment available at the mills. However, times have changed and farmers are setting up again along the Northern Corridor, taking advantage of the affordable land, grant and funding opportunities and the growing demand for diverse, locally sourced and artisan foods.
