Welcome to the farm community and congratulations on choosing farming for your new business enterprise. Agriculture provides many opportunities to start and grow a farming enterprise that meets your needs and interest. Many of the medium and large scale farming operations, supporting several families today, started small and grew over time as skills developed, markets were refined and demand for their product increased. And farming is a
good small business. Farms tend to stay in business longer than other small businesses and
farms tend to be transferred to the next generation more frequently than other small businesses.

With music by Marianne Grittani
Marianne Grittani began performing in the late 60s when she was 14 in Toronto, Ontario. Her music, with so many varied influences defies categorization. She calls it ‘folky, funky and anything in between’. She explores a lot of musical territory, on standard acoustic six string guitar, a resonator guitar and mandolin. Her compelling voice along with her strong sense of rhythm, melody and dynamics weave through and around her lyrics to create an engaging musical tapestry.
