An Opportunity for Innovation
Urban Crops started in Toronto’s backyards and community gardens before moving to the 65 acres of Cavaleiro Farm.
65 acres is a lot of backyards, so we needed an approach to managing Cavaleiro that was a little different. The solution? Why not just add more farmers? Introducing Cavaleiro Business Memberships…
It’s a win-win for everyone. A group of farmers could use the land at Cavaleiro Farm more intensely and effectively. Plus, more farmers using the same resources helps to bring down our costs.
As for farmers, renting land is possible in general, but that land doesn’t usually come with anything. At Cavaleiro Farm, we actually provide the services and support you need to run a local food business. We operate like an incubator, so you’re never alone on your land.
We’re proud of how our community has grown over the years, and look forward to inviting new members to share in learning together and supporting each other in our business ventures!
