Food, Fun, and Farming for the Under-Forty Crowd

Tickets now available for CFFO Farming Under 40 BBQs.

Networking opportunities. Information exchange. Social connection. And of course, a bouncy castle.

All these add up to the annual CFFO Farming Under 40 Barbeques. This July, the Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario will host young farmers and their families at four events across southern Ontario. Open to both members and non-members of the CFFO, the barbeques are a chance to celebrate the hard work and entrepreneurship of young farmers.

“The CFFO believes in the future of Ontario farming,” says President Clarence Nywening, who will host a barbeque at his farm near Thamesville. “We want to encourage young people to get involved and be the next group of leaders.”

During the events, adults can meet fellow farmers and hear a guest speaker from Farm Credit Canada. Children will be busy enjoying provided entertainment, including carnival games, face painting and cotton candy.

Farming Under 40 barbeques are free to young farmers and families, but tickets are required. Click the links below to register in your area.
