Small Farms Manitoba and Direct Farm Manitoba are joining forces.
Direct Farm Manitoba is a new association formed after the Farmer’s Market Association of Manitoba broadened membership criteria this spring. Small Farms Manitoba is an online network created by Kalynn Spain who spent the summer of 2014 visiting and writing about smaller farmers in Manitoba.
In January Direct Farm Manitoba will oversee all aspects of Small Farms Manitoba while Spain will work with DFM in a continued partnership. A Direct Farm Conference will be held January 21 in Winnipeg.
