Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers to be honoured at national event

The Ontario OYF Region is hard at work preparing to host Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers’ National Event in Niagara Falls. The event will take place at the Hilton Fallsview from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4.

“We’re thrilled to be able to showcase the beauty of our region at this years’ national event,” says Regional Chair Cory Van Groningen. “We want to invite everyone to come and take part in all that the Niagara region has to offer. We’ve included a variety of opportunities to explore the region and take advantage of this years’ beautiful location.”
Every year this event brings recognition to outstanding farm couples in Canada between 18 and 39 years of age who have exemplified excellence in their profession while fostering better urban-rural relations. Seven entrepreneurial farm couples from across Canada chosen from their home regions will present highlights of their operations at the national event. This year’s honourees include:

  • Jason & Laura Kehler, Carman MB
  • Adrian & Jodi Roelands, Lambton Shores ON
  • Dominic Drapeau & Celia Neault, Ste-Françoise-de-Lotbinière QC
  • Andrew & Jennifer Lovell, Keswick Ridge NB
