FREDERICTON, January 19th, 2021 – The Agricultural Alliance of New Brunswick, the National Farmers Union in New Brunswick, and Really Local Harvest have formed the Agriculture NB collective, following the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the three organizations.
The creation of an agri-food collective by this MOU includes the mandates of collaboration and consultation between agri-food organizations and resource efficiency by sharing collective responsibilities to support activities or projects.
The three organizations have already collaborated on several files together in 2020, namely the lifting of the ban on temporary foreign workers, initiatives to farmers with labour challenges through the pandemic, public communications regarding changes to the distribution of craft alcohol, and sounding the alarm about the strain on our food system.
The National Farmers Union in N.B. and the Agricultural Alliance of NB are both general farm organizations that represent the interests of all agricultural sectors of the province. Really Local Harvest is a cooperative of about thirty farms from southeastern New Brunswick with a strong focus on food security and the prosperity of family farms province-wide. The organizations look forward to working together on issues such as provincial abattoirs, food security, and rural internet access.
