How We Help

What If You Could Scale Your Farm or Operation—or Just Work Smarter?

From finding growth opportunities for your small or medium agricultural business to providing resources to navigate our new economic reality, REACH is designed to help support your North Okanagan farm or operation.

Through REACH, you will connect with specialists and resources tailored to your specific needs, whether you need to hire more staff, find new business avenues, restructure your business or all the above.

We’re here to help you grow.


Reach is designed to work with the busy schedule of an agri-food business owner. You’ll spend approximately 22 weeks in REACH working part-time through five distinct phases. Phase 1 begins in October, and Phase 5 concludes in March 2023.

You’ll gain insights into recovering from setbacks and receive support in planning for the future. First, you’ll analyze your business operations and your market and competitors. A consultant will be with you every step of the way as you dive into specialized resources to supplement your professional toolkit.

You don’t need to pay anything. Participation in REACH is completely free for eligible business owners.

If your registered agriculture business has been open for at least two years, you’re eligible to participate in REACH. You must also be growth-focused and willing to dedicate time to the agriculture accelerator program.
