The Hortifruti Sapecado project and the Ed’s Kitchen project are now part of the StrongFarm program, promoting tourism as a strategic and economic support tool for the sustainable development of rural communities in Nova Scotia Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, and Prince Edward Island. This project aims to serve farms and small communities, generating collaboration between local producers to create a direct online communication channel with the target audience.


EXA Group Canada optimizes the agricultural production processes of StrongFarm program member partners, managing soil analysis and introducing permaculture practices for the unique production of natural organic foods in that region. The company observes water and energy consumption and seeks strategies and solutions for the best cost-benefit in the adaptations in search of sustainability. These processes create the program's long-term quality and continuous improvement system.
