New Entrant Program

Egg Farmers of Alberta’s New Entrant Program (NEP) was developed and launched in 2012. EFA recognizes that it is vital to the long-term sustainability of the egg industry that new farmers and new investments are encouraged. The NEP was established in order to assist individuals and families who want to own and operate an egg farm in Alberta, by issuing a portion of newly allocated egg quota to successful applicants, thereby alleviating some of the producer’s start-up costs. EFA’s NEP provides an excellent opportunity for anyone with a passion for egg farming and a desire to join our industry!
