Young Farmers Passionate About Growing Local Food

Specialty Turkey
Region Central
Farmers Austin & Joanne

Austin grew up on a turkey farm in central Manitoba and at the age of 21, he returned to the farm with his wife, Joanne. Austin credits his parents for their support as the family farm has successfully transitioned to the third generation. Farm life is busy, especially with two young children, but the couple still find time for hobbies like fishing and woodworking. Joanne grows a big garden, canning and preserving much of the harvest for their own enjoyment, but they are also proud of their role in supplying a 100% local product to other Manitobans.
