We invite you to join our mailing list to receive updates about upcoming events and the work of the PFO.
Get in your kitchens, buy unprocessed foods, turn off the TV, and prepare your own foods. This is liberating.
PFO - Small Flock Campaign
Our small flock chicken campaign is geared to providing small,
diversified farmers with more options for selling their products
directly to customers - and providing consumers with more choice in the
food marketplace. For more information on the current restrictions, to sign our online petition, order postcards or view updates click here.
PFO - Donations
The Practical Farmers of Ontario is a federally incorporated non-profit organization. Currently, we are not a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency. However, your donations help us with our campaigns. We encourage everyone to become a member of the PFO first, but are grateful to those who wish to help us with a financial contribution.

We ask you to join us in our fight to save our rights as farmers to produce good quality, sound food, for sale direct to consumers.
We can only win this fight by coming together to save the family farm and ensure there are opportunities for the next generation.
