Do you know your Regional VP, Hugh Fraser?

hugh fraserHugh Fraser operates his one-man consulting firm called OTB Farm Solutions...Outside-the-Barn bright thinking for farming in the urban shadow. He works with farmers in the Greater Toronto Area dealing with rural-urban issues. For instance; defending a swine farmer against a dwelling severance next door, or as an expert witness at an Ontario Municipal Board hearing relating to normal farm practice.

In his spare time, he is writing a book about swing beam barns in Niagara, a type of barn built 1825 to 1875, mainly for wheat production, the cash crop at the time. The book will be out in 2018 and includes over 50 existing barns, some with unsupported white pine swing beams as large as 11 m long, 70 cm deep at their centre, 50 cm deep at their ends, and 35 cm wide.
