8 projects at farms in Niagara West get $66,000 in funding
Eight farm projects across Niagara are getting a boost from the Ontario government.
The Governments of Ontario and Canada are investing $7.3 million through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership to help support farmers and agri-food businesses.
$66,000 will be directed to eight farm projects in Niagara West.
"This is a critical investment for a number of farm families across our region," said Sam Oosterhoff, MPP for Niagara West. "Raised on a local farm, I understand the long hours and hard work it takes to produce safe and high-quality food."
The funding supports more than 600 cost-shared projects.
