Peer Groups

“Joining this peer group is absolutely one of the better decisions we have made as a farm and I look forward to every meeting. The peer group has been immensely valuable to me and my farm. Any opportunity to learn about other farmer's operations has great value, but what makes the peer group so effective is that we have time to get to know each other.

We understand the context within which they operate, which offers so much more clarity on why they do what they do. You just can't get that anywhere else. It really isn't just about farm operations either; it's about HR, management, communications, budgets and, importantly, mental health (and so much more),” says Jake Leguee (Leguee Farms, Fillmore, SK).

Peer groups are defined as “a group of people, usually of similar age, background, and social status, with whom a person associates and who are likely to influence the person's beliefs and behavior”.

One of Backswath Management’s most important programs is organizing peer groups for the Canadian farming community. We see the value in bring farmers and farm families together to meet, share, learn while building relationships with other like-minded participants in an open, trusted and confidential environment of peer group meetings up to three times per year (working around the planting and harvesting seasons). We advocate the “farmers learning from farmers” process as there is great value in sharing experiences, tips, contacts, and connections from others doing similar farm business management.

Backswath Management provides administration and coordination services to the peer group as well as facilitation of the meetings. This includes planning the in-person meetings; coordinate data collection where applicable; prepare reports as required. Facilitators are provided and their role is to lead and guide the discussion and to keep the peer group on point based on the goals and objectives identified by each peer group’s Charter. They are there to engage participants, to make sure that everyone is heard and encouraged to speak up, and to keep the group focused on the agenda as determined by the members of the peer group.
