Effective & Efficient Labour Models

Tuesday, November 27, 2:30PM - 3:30 PM   

Brent Preston has utilized a number of labour models on his farm near Creemore, Ontario - volunteer, part-time, unpaid interns, paid local staff and offshore workers. He now farms with a crew of seven full-time employees from Mexico. This workshop will explore the ethical, legal and financial questions surrounding small farm labour models, and how farmers can provide fair, safe and meaningful employment while maintaining profits.
