We produced a series of short videos featuring our own local talent! This special project is the brain-child of Matt Roth and Kate Kading. Thanks to Richard Janzen @ RJC High School for recording and editing. HUGE shout out to Kate for many volunteer hours spent in production, and Crystal Klassen for organizing.

What do you think the Ag Industry's biggest challenges are?
What's your favourite local food/beverage and where do you get it? Our area produces and exports more food than you can shake a….fork at! Today Matt Enns of @makers malt highlights the value added process to grain grown right in our backyard.

Can you remember anything you learned from your science teacher? In this video Eric Yoder connects science and soil.
What is your favourite thing to do out in nature? Farmer's work is a lifestyle dependant on nature. Brian & Delilah Roth, Eldon Funk and Matt Hildebrandt discuss caring for the land and critters.
Emily Hand's urban farm may be mini, but her passion for ag awareness is mighty! Think of all the things you used today that involved agriculture to produce, from food and clothing to cosmetics and crayons. Everyone is involved in ag!
Support local has never been more trendy, or more relied upon than during this pandemic. What local businesses and producers do you have in your area?
Spending time in a multi-generational setting is a real privilege! What is some advice that your parents or grandparents taught you?
How do you make the most of your time with your kids and grandkids? Most people can’t take them to work, but often in agriculture, you get to bring them along for the ride. What a treat!
What is your favorite subject to talk about? Get into a conversation with farmers you will talk all-farming, all the time. Not that that’s a bad thing!
If you could share one moment from your farm with someone who has never been to a farm before, what would it be? Eldon’s got us #InTheFeels talking about how much he loves his job.

What ag innovations have most impressed you throughout history? From ostriches to urban mini-farms to large-scale cattle operations, our valley area offers diverse opportunities in agriculture. (But seriously! Who was the first guy to say "hey, let's bring ostriches to Sask?!)
