Over a thousand animals are located at the remodelled demonstration farm in Kapuskasing. The farm has proven to have a local impact by providing locally raised pork and beef to businesses in town. Economic Development Officer for the Town of Kapuskasing, Andre Robichaud, says the farm has directly and indirectly created several jobs.  Originally the property was being used as an experimental farm for the federal government, but the Kapuskasing EDC purchased the property last year.
