AMI evolves program offerings under Canadian Agricultural Partnership

The Agri-Food Management Institute (AMI) has announced plans to deliver a mixture of established and new farm management programming under the newly launched Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

Existing AMI initiatives, including the Advanced Farm Management Program, Transition Smart, and the Learning Roadshow, will continue under the new five-year federal-provincial ag funding framework.

AMI plans to launch a Beginner Farmer Entrant workshop this year to build off the business planning tool.

Last year, AMI developed a New Entrant to Farming business planning tool, designed to help new pepople consider all the components of starting their own farm operation either within an existing business or on their own.  It walks through topics such as building your value proposition, financial planning, and cash flow, business transfer and managing and mentoring.

“This year we’re working to turn the New Farm Launch plan into a one day workshop to help new entrants connect with peers and learn more about building a business plan to get up and running,” says Ashley Honsberger, executive director of Agri-Food Management Institute. “In the end the new entrant planning tool helps them build a new farm launch plan to get their operation up and running, and think about all the variable and fixed costs they may need to consider.”

Also new to AMI’s offering will be resources and tools to address productivity-related issues in farm and food processing businesses. The organization will also be focusing on regional opportunities for value-adding by building connections along the value chain and identifying supply chain gaps in local food production.

AMI provides information and offers training opportunities for producers and processors. AMI receives funding from the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

  1. Hi,
    I think what AMI is doing is great work. Helping new farmers launch their operation is a huge deal in today’s community. Less than 2% of the population are farmers, with AMI working to help, I believe in the future of agriculture.
