FARMERS LOSING FIGHT AGAINST URBAN SPRAWL

Farmers losing fight against urban sprawl From the deck of Foxhill Farm, Richard Rand can look out over Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley and see the green fields rolling off like a crumbled blanket toward Cape Blomidon. By CanWest News Service October 7, 2007 From the deck of Foxhill Farm, Richard Rand can look out over Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley and see the green fields rolling off like a crumbled blanket toward Cape Blomidon.

It's an inspiring, beautiful sight and one that's very much in demand these days - from the Annapolis Valley to Ontario's Niagara Peninsula and British Columbia's Okanagan Valley.

Much of Canada's rich farm land is more valuable for housing developments these days than it is for supporting crops.

Whereas land for growing vegetables or raising cattle might fetch $2,000 an acre, developers are ready to offer farmers $40,000 an acre, knowing they can flip it for twice that when the property becomes part of a new subdivision.

It's that loss of land that's concerning advocates about the long-term viability and supply of locally grown food.

"I always considered myself a steward of the land," said Rand, whose family has farmed in the Annapolis Valley for six generations. But that's not necessarily the case with a couple of his neighbours, who are currently considering selling their farms to make room for new developments that could hold anywhere from 300 to 500 new homes.

Rand said he's not anti-development, but the idea of prime agricultural land being turned into subdivisions disturbs him.

A couple of weeks ago Rand held a meeting to debate the idea. "If I don't say something, I'm guilty for just standing and watching it go by," he said.
