Working together with our partners, we broaden the fruit and vegetable offerings in Northumberland County by increasing the seasonality of locally grown products. Through new technologies in food processing and packaging, the OAFVC increases production and enhances demand for local food offerings.
Thanks to the assistance of our partners, the OAFVC’s impact will reach beyond the immediate usefulness to the farming community. The facility encourages investment in local agriculture and supports entrepreneurial endeavours in agriculture and related support industries. Further, we are creating new business opportunities which will result in increased revenues and employment in our communities.
