Happiness By The Acre

We are first-generation farmers working on 153 acres near Didsbury, AB. Having not grown up on a farm, we bring some fresh & interesting perspectives to local agriculture. But we also face a HUGE learning curve and continual infrastructure builds. When we purchased the farm it was being used for grain crops, with no roads, utilities or even fencing! It was like a blank slate for us.

Our farm work primarily draws on regenerative agriculture practices, with the focus of improving the land by promoting soil health, regrowth and rebuilding an entire ecosystem. In the short time that we have been on our land, we have seen it go from heavy tilled, hard-packed soil with very little organic matter to vibrant mixed species in our pastures, croaking toads and salamanders. All good signs that we are on the right track!

We raise happy hens on pasture to sell farm fresh eggs and do precision, custom grazing of cattle. We also have a flock of ducks and this year we are welcoming our first piglets! We work with many other farmers and specialists, including soil health monitoring, beekeepers, and market gardeners.

This year, we have had the amazing opportunity to be selected on the shortlist of the 30th Annual Emerald Awards recipients by the Alberta Emerald Foundation for our environmental work!
