About

Whenever possible, HNS works in partnership with other agricultural interest groups to benefit the industry and the provincial economy.

For its members, HNS provides advocacy, information dissemination, marketing and special promotions, relationship building and related opportunities with government and other organizations, research, networking, education and awareness. Specifically to the public, HNS promotes the primary benefits of buying Nova Scotia-grown berries and vegetables – for personal, economic and environmental health. Nova Scotia vegetables and berries are recognized for their high standards of quality. The vegetable and berry growers of Nova Scotia practice up-to-date on-farm food safety practices and have been involved in the Canadian Horticultural Council’s On-Farm-Food-Safety program since its inception. With the province’s wide variety of climates, Nova Scotia farmers can grow berries and vegetables many people believe only grow in other countries. And with new varieties and technologies, seasons are lengthening dramatically for a variety of produce!

“Farmers growing a healthy future!”
