How has Ontario Farming held up in 2021? Even though COVID-19 has tested the food supply chains all around the world, Ontario is fortunate to have one of the strongest supply chains around. Ontario has hard-working farmers, food processors, and retailers rising up to the challenge.
Even after the global pandemic hit the world, Ontario’s agri-food system remained a strong economic driver, contributing $47.7 billion. The provincial economy supports 837,100 jobs. The province is home to nearly 50,000 farmers that grow over 200 commodities.
Ontario has a wide diversity of farms, with the most common ones being:
Ontario grows over 90% of Canada’s soybeans, almost all of the tobacco grown within the country, and has nearly half of Canada’s corn farms. Relative to the rest of the country, the province of Ontario is also strong in mushrooms, vegetable production, broilers, pigs, turkeys, and sheep.
At the same time, Ontario’s share of Canada’s egg and dairy farms is proportional to the province's population. And while grain, beef, and fruit remain important types of farms in Ontario, other parts of Canada produce a greater proportion of these products within the country.
Ontario offers ample opportunities for aspiring hobby farmers and established commercial farmers alike. Farm and land are in high demand as farmers look to expand operations. New entrepreneurs are looking to farming as a secure and profitable investment.

Should you buy a hobby or a commercial farm? This quick comparison will help you to understand the main differences between the two:
A hobby farm, also known as homesteading or acreage, performs small scale farming, often for joy rather than profits. Hobby farmers usually work part-time, with no realistic expectations of making a significant impact through farming.
Typically, a hobby farm will be up to 30 acres in area, with annual gross revenue of less than $10,000.
A commercial farm operates with the goal of generating revenue as a primary source of income for the farmer. Full-time farmers manage complex business operations, including buying farmland in Ontario, purchasing equipment, and selling products. Ontario farmers feed the nation and may even produce a surplus for international export, including beef, poultry, dairy, produce, and grain.
Making the Decision
If you are new to farming and aren’t ready to give up your full-time employment, purchasing a hobby farm may be a great way to start. On the other hand, if you already have significant farming and agricultural experience and are looking to turn your farming passion into a primary source of income, commercial farming is the way to go.
