The end of the year is the best time to start growing fresh food in Canada, says fresh fodder producer David Gagnon, who is celebrating the arrival of January by planting bananas and sorghums.
Gagnons team of eight has been growing potatoes, strawberries and other plants since April and is hoping to harvest a harvest of more than 4,000 pounds this year.
“The best thing to do is go into the ground and get your crops planted,” said Gagnson.
The plantings have taken place at his farm, a one-stop shop in the village of Barrie, and the next step will be a shipment of seeds to be planted on his land in the province of Quebec.
Gagne said he and his team of about 20 workers are planting seeds and hoping to be ready to harvest next year.
The harvest will be the start of a new year for many farmers in Canada and abroad.
“It is a great time to be a farmer,” Gagnont said.
He said he has had the support of many people in his village. “
We are excited to start harvesting in the new year.”

The province said it supports farmers who choose to grow their own crops and that it was offering support to farmers who had already planted seeds.
