Environmental Farm Plans (EFP)


Foothills Forage is committed to helping you complete an Alberta Environmental Farm Plan (EFP): a process that helps you identify and address environmental risks and opportunities in your operation. The EFP will play a key part in:

  • Safeguarding your local environment

  • Building credibility for your operation with financial institutions and the community at large

  • Sustaining the health and future of the agriculture industry

The EFP program provides you with a voluntary, confidential self-assessment process to evaluate the environmental risks and strengths of your operation and develop a plan to address those risks and strengths.

  • Learn more about how agricultural practices affect the environment

  • Learn more about management options that protect soil, water, air and habitat quality

  • Identify what you are already doing well and where improvements can be made

To find out more about the Alberta Environmental Farm Plan, please visit for specific details on the Alberta Farm Plan program and its resources. 

Already Have an EFP?

It is recommended you re-visit your Environmental Farm Plan every 5 years as the books, regulations, and your operation can change.
