The definition of the Annual Business Award of Excellence in the category Entrepreneur Award is: “A business that has developed a product or enhanced a marketing opportunity that is unique or innovative.”
“While most people do not consider farming as particularly unique or innovative, Biodynamic Farming certainly is – at least here in Nova Scotia. They have brought to our area a process that moves way past organic…” from the introduction by Karen Enright, Senior Vice President of the Digby and Area Board of Trade.
Bear River Farms is a certified Biodynamic Farm located between Deep Brook and Bear River – that is between Annapolis Royal and Digby, in Nova Scotia, Canada. The farm is operated by F.O.R. Ltd., a joint venture of individuals who developed a forward-thinking farming concept that is simple, efficient and sustainable.
Their goal is to set an example of how to start, renew, and operate small farm enterprises and how to save and protect the soil, the seeds, the breeds and a safe source of comprehensive nourishing food, for now and for following generations.
