Welcome to the Normal Farm Practices Protection Board

The Normal Farm Practices Protection Board was established by the Farming and Food Production Protection Act, 1998, to resolve disputes regarding agricultural operations and to determine what constitutes a normal farm practice. In performing that function, the board seeks to achieve the stated goal of the legislature in balancing the needs of the agricultural community with provincial health, safety and environmental concerns.
