Daryl Fransoo

Daryl farms with his father near Glaslyn, Saskatchewan. He produces spring and soft white wheat, malt barley, canola, multiple varieties of peas and lentils, and oats.

Daryl’s family also owned and operated a pulse processing and exporting business in Saskatchewan.

As a young grower, Daryl has a passion to continue growing the family farm, and enjoys researching better ways to manage the agronomy, financials, and marketing decisions of the farm.

Daryl played three seasons in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, with both the Weyburn Red Wings and the Flin Flon Bombers.
