Thank you very much for your comments.
Mr. Hutten, I appreciate your comments on how you've taken advantage of online marketing and how you're barely able to keep up. In my own community over here on Vancouver Island, we also have an online marketplace that allows farmers to make available online the products they have in season, so people can order them. The farmers really like it, because they only need to harvest as much as people need, so they're able to keep their vegetables in the ground longer, and it gives them a little more leeway in seeing what the demand will be.
Can you tell the committee what your own experience was like in transitioning to online marketing and sales, maybe some of the difficulties and roadblocks you had? Is this something the government needs to identify to offer support to other farms so they can take advantage of accessing that local market, building community resilience, etc.?
