I grew up helping my dad and Grandfather with the daily chores on the farm, then went off to school, before returning to the farm to start the transition of taking over the family farm. I am a third generation egg farmer. My Grandfather started the farm in 1948, then my dad took over and now I’ve taken it over, along with my wife and two kids.
I got into egg farming because my family is in egg farming. I watched and helped them with the chores, knowing that at the end of the day, all that hard work would be sitting on someone’s breakfast table the next morning.
Egg farming means that at the end of a working day, I know that I have done everything possible to put a healthy, good quality egg on the table for people to enjoy.
Putting a high quality, nutritious and delicious egg on the plate for Alberta families.
We also have about 2300 acres of crop land that produces wheat, barley, canola and forage crop (alfalfa).
I do my job with the utmost pride, knowing that Albertans can enjoy a fresh, nutritious, locally produced egg, every day!
Most eggs produced in Alberta come from family farms, many of which have been in the same family for several generations. My family has been producing high quality eggs for more than 64 years, to feed our family and yours.
