TORONTO — The Nova Scotia agriculture model is shifting to create more agri-tourism as the farming industry continues to lose its appeal in the labour force, according to the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture, as reported by CBC News.
“We’sre kind of moving away from that commodity-driven agriculture. There is a vast population that’s growing in the interest of what’s going on the farm,” Wanda Hamilton, communications officer for the federation, is quoted as saying by the CBC.
The shift is largely due to a growing interest in the 100-mile diet and the local food movement.
