My one-person consulting firm's motto is 'Outside-the-Barn (OTB) bright thinking for farming in the urban shadow.' I work with farmers of all kinds, mostly in Niagara in four main areas: writing on-farm technical reports for non-tech audiences; clarification of best management practices that support normal farm practice; mediation of nuisances under the Farming and Food Production Protection Act; and as a certified auditor for the Grape Growers of Ontario and Craft Wineries Ontario for the Ontario Viticulture and Winery Sustainability program.
I am also the author of a new book entitled, 'Swing Beam Barns of Niagara: Stories of 50 barns built in Ontario circa 1819 to 1884.' Two thirds of the barns in the book are located within the Town of Lincoln borders.
