Agriculture Hall of Fame Call for Nominations

 
The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame is now accepting nominations to honour individuals who have made significant contributions to Alberta’s agriculture and agri-food industry, and to the development and sustainability of rural life in Alberta.
 
“Every two years, Alberta’s Agriculture Hall of Fame recognizes up to three individuals whose outstanding leadership, innovation, and business practices have advanced Alberta’s agriculture and food industry at the provincial level or beyond,” says Colin Gosselin, senior project coordinator with the Hall of Fame.
 
Since 1951, the Hall of Fame has celebrated the accomplishments of men and women who have dedicated their lives to agriculture and their rural communities. The 132 inductees have been innovators and risk takers in every area of agriculture, from ground breaking farming techniques to scientific accomplishments, creating value-added products, and other outstanding contributions that have had a lasting, positive impact on agriculture and rural Alberta.
 
The 2018 inductees will be honoured this October at a celebration ceremony.

It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas at the Farm

Video: It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas at the Farm

Over the last few afternoons and evenings we’ve been starting to decorate the farm for Christmas. The Christmas tree is up, a few more dogs are arriving for their holidays, the kids are very excited. Luke’s family is coming after several years of not due to all the things that have affected everyone’s family togetherness over the last couple of years. There will also be a few ‘first’ Christmas’ this year for some of the dogs at the farm so it’s going to be that little bit extra special for all of us. The excitement is just beginning.
