About Us

No Farms No Food is a community coalition located in Kings County, Nova Scotia. Our volunteer work aims to preserve farmland from residential, commercial and/or industrial development.

We are farmers, tourism and business operators, wildlife enthusiasts, teachers, health care professionals, lawyers and individuals from every walk of life. Our commonality? We all call the Annapolis Valley “home” or recognize its importance to our future. We are committed to the long term sustainability of farmland.

We work hard and on a completely volunteer basis to increase food security in Nova Scotia, support our farm economy, and to protect the soils and farmlands that have sustained families in Kings County,Nova Scotia, since the 1700s.

Join us in supporting the concept of a 100-mile diet and the importance of purchasing and promoting locally produced foods.

Other interesting facts… Members of No Farms No Food have been active in the development of Farmworks and in the development of the Annapolis Valley Farmland Trust. In fact, among our most ardent members are Paul and Marilyn Cameron of Grafton who were the first farmers to donate an agricultural easement to the trust.

We need your help to oppose the loss of farmland. Be seen, listen, speak out, write a letter to Councillors and to the Minister of Agriculture. These are all necessary steps on the road to stopping any additional development of our farmland.

Follow and like our Facebook page. In the months ahead we face the challenge of ensuring that the new Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use Bylaw is capable of fully preserving the future of our farmland. Our Facebook page will keep you current.
