KOOTENAY & BOUNDARY FARM ADVISORS
The Kootenay & Boundary Farm Advisors (KBFA) provides producers with free, technical production support and information from a network of specialized resources, including independent consultants and academics. KBFA supports producers to improve agricultural production and efficiency by helping find solutions to farm-specific production issues, coordinating educational events and connecting producers to information.
KBFA services are free to agricultural producers in our region working towards commercial viability. The KBFA region is collectively the regional districts of Kootenay Boundary, Central Kootenay, and East Kootenay, and the Columbia Basin Trust region.
KBFA general farm advisors provide one-on-one consultations with producers to identify and prioritize the services or specialist knowledge required to address the producer's needs. Specialist advisors, including government and university researchers, private sector consultants, and experienced producers, provide information to producers on specific issues. Events, including field days and workshops, provide opportunities for farmers to meet and share ideas that address common issues.
