Jeff farms with his wife Shilow in Dodsland Saskatchewan, a small village in the west central part of the province. He has officially been farming for seven years, but has been engrained in the industry for over thirty. He became a farmer because it’s part of his blood; his family farm celebrated its centennial almost a decade ago! He can’t think of any lifestyle that challenges him, upsets him, keeps him on his toes or gives him the sense of accomplishment that farming provides. Jeff loves the technology, mechanics, being his own boss and even the long hours.
Jeff graduated from the University of Saskatchewan and prior to joining the family farm he worked as a sales rep and agronomist for various ag companies.
Interestingly, the rugged hands that Jeff uses to farm were once refined enough to earn him his grade 8 piano from the Royal Conservatory of Music.
