Who We Are


The Business Advisory Team Inc. is a group of business management specialists who offer business planning, marketing strategies, and workshops for Farm|Food|Drink businesses and organizations. Our subsidiary, Left Field Marketing, works from these plans to create brands and campaigns that help Farm|Food|Drink businesses grow through effective marketing and sales. Though we operate as two distinct teams, we work hand-in-hand to efficiently grow our clients’ businesses.

We have worked with hundreds of Farm|Food|Drink businesses, from start-up to growth/expansion, to exit. We work hand-in-hand with provincial and national associations and organizations that support the growth of small-scale farm and food companies. As many of our clients are leaders in this sector, we have practical knowledge and an insiders view of what works and what grows. Through all of our practical experience and industry/expert relationships, which have focused on enabling viability and success for our clients, we have developed into a very distinct operation that allows us to offer insightful, creative and practical support to Farm|Food|Drink businesses.
