The Department of Agriculture, Aquaculture and Fisheries is seeking public input in the development of an agricultural land policy.
Agriculture is an essential and historical part of New Brunswick’s rural economy, generating in excess of $570 million in farmgate sales, and over $1 billion of processed agri-food products. Together, farmers and processors provide 11,000 full-time equivalent jobs.
Farmland is an essential resource in agriculture. A clear agricultural land policy will help protect farmers from encroachment while retaining valuable farmland for new entrants and farmers who wish to expand. It will help them to know where they can invest and grow their business.
