Agriculture has traditionally been a dominant land use and economic force in both the City of Kawartha Lakes and the Greater Peterborough Area.  Agriculture and agriculturally related businesses generate significant economic activity through direct and indirect employment and through the buying and selling of products, goods and services.

To better understand the industry, and plan for its future, the Economic Impact and Development Study Steering Committee commissioned this study of agriculture within the geographical boundaries of the City of Kawartha Lakes and the County of Peterborough.  In recognition of their common interests, the two regions agreed to work together on this important initiative and so the steering committee was comprised of representatives from both the City of Kawartha Lakes and the Greater Peterborough Area.

The study objective was to assess the importance of agriculture to the area economy.  In doing so, a profile of the agriculture and agriculturally related businesses was prepared and issues including the societal value of agriculture, labour market trends, human resource issues and economic opportunities were examined.
