The Edible Horticulture Support Program provides financial support to help Ontario producers of edible horticulture products adjust to new and challenging cost pressures in the small-business environment. Payments are based on net sales of edible horticulture. This program is funded by the Ontario government and runs for two years, from 2018 to 2019.
No action is required for producers who have:
• Made an SDRM deposit for 2017, or
• Received a 2017 SDRM participant package and have a valid premises ID on file with Agricorp
These producers will automatically receive payment details in the mail in late April.
Other producers, including those new to farming, can call Agricorp to apply by March 23. Agricorp will work with producers to collect their tax data and make sure they have a premises ID.
Eligibility requirements and full details about the program are available at agricorp.com/EHSP.
