2021 put another year in the books for the Thanks for Farming Tour. We made stops in Lethbridge, AB and Swift Current, SK to say thank you to the local farmers and provide them with a day that was all about them. Our attendees were able to hear from featured speakers on topics including succession planning, cover crops and understanding mental health.  We were also able to provide daily entertainment with the infamous, Quick Dick McDick. 

The Thanks for Farming Tour was started with the mission to thank farmers for all that they do to feed the world and to give back to their communities. 2021 was no different, we were proud to support charities like Wood’s Homes & Farming Smarter in Alberta and Swift Current Ag & Ex and Dr Nobel Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation in Saskatchewan. 

We had a great time meeting new farmers and seeing some familiar faces, we can’t wait to see you in 2022!
