Better Decisions: Does your farm business need an injection of creativity?

Harnessing your creativity and doing the proper planning are essential to developing the value-added ideas your farm business may need


This winter, up to 20 workshops on “Growing Your Opportunities – Quest for New Farm Value” will be offered across the province.

Ideas come from our own creativity and, as Gary Morton of Morton Horticultural Associates, the workshop author, explains, creativity comes from such basic human forces as listed in Figure 1.
