Past Sheep & Goat Specialist with Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food, Anita has since focused primarily on raising meat lambs. Anita farms just outside the small village of Lansdowne in the Thousand Islands area of eastern Ontario.
During her years with OMAFRA, Anita served on several working groups developing national programs, including the Sheep On-Farm Food Safety WG, the Sheep Code of Practice WG and most recently the Canadian Verified Sheep Program WG.
Several years ago, Anita accepted a part-time role with Ontario Sheep Farmers as the On-Farm Program Lead. She is also now coordinating the delivery of the third version of the Master Shepherd’s course.
