Bridging the Gap Between Policy, the Agriculture Industry and Farmers


Filling the Knowledge Gap

As governments increasingly find themselves without the in-house expertise to fully grasp the intricate nature of the agriculture sector, they are turning to farm groups and the wider industry for guidance. They’re relying on entities like yours to provide comprehensive research, along with well-formed recommendations and analysis. Furthermore, farmers are now actively being sought to voice their opinions on both provincial and national policy frameworks.

But this raises some pertinent questions: Is your organization equipped to bridge this growing knowledge chasm? Have you structured a plan to extend policy insights to your farmer members, aiding them in understanding the very issues they’re being invited to discuss?

This is where Burr Forest Group’s policy services come in. Our goal is to demystify policy matters for all stakeholders, including your farmer members. Leveraging our creative prowess and profound agricultural insight, we stand poised to strategize and advocate in ways that will best represent and further the aspirations of your farmer members.
