Farm Business Registration
You can get your CFFO Membership via the Farm Business Registration Program from Agricorp.
All farm businesses in Ontario that gross $7,000 or more annually are required by law to register their farm business with Agricorp.
There are a number of benefits to registering your farm business:
- Farm property class tax rate – You may qualify to pay 25 per cent of the municipal residential rate on your agricultural land.
- Eligibility for government programs – You are eligible for programs including the Wildlife Damage Compensation Program and Growing Forward 2 initiatives.
- Membership with the CFFO, an accredited farm organization
For new FBR registrations
If you are registering for the first time, please contact Agricorp to register, and choose CFFO for your accredited farm organization.
You will need to send them your proof of income, including your T1 (for individuals) or T2 (for corporations).
When they have received this information, they will phone you back to provide you with your FBR number and payment options.
For FBR registration renewals
Once you have registered your farm business, they will send you an invoice each year.
To renew your FBR registration, pay your fee by March 1.
