Canada's Outstanding Young Farmers for 2022 are from Saskatchewan and Quebec

Canada's Outstanding Young Farmers Program held their annual convention this week in Saskatoon.

Each year two operations from across Canada are chosen for the national title.

This year's national event winners are from Saskatchewan and Quebec.

Cody Straza and Allison Squires own and operate Upland Organics at Wood Mountain (Saskatchewan).

The couple met at university and started their organic farm in 2010.

He notes that they farmed for a few years with his parents.

"We built a green cleaning plant with them. We started doing regenerative agriculture practices in 2016 or so, and then in 2018, we expanded into beef cattle."

Squires, who grew up in the city, says the focus on their farm is on improving the soil and practicing organic regenerative agriculture.
