13 farm families will be honoured today as 2019 Farmfair International BMO Farm Family Award Winners

Edmonton, AB: For 50 years, BMO has recognized farm families from across northern and central Alberta with the BMO Farm Family Awards. Families are nominated from 20 counties across the region by other members of their community. Once nominated, the Northern and Central Agricultural Service Boards select outstanding families who best represent values of the family farm within their rural community. The award honours both their farming business practices and community involvement.

We’re proud to announce the recipients of the 2019 BMO Farm Family Awards:

They’ll each be honoured at Farmfair International on Saturday, November 9 at the BMO Farm Family Awards Gala and receive a commemorative gate sign.

As a proud supporter of Alberta’s agriculture industry, Northlands is grateful for the hard work these families do as vital contributors to agriculture and their rural roots. “As leaders in Alberta’s agriculture industry, winning farm families share the same deep roots in their communities and great passion for farming and ranching,” said Peter Male, President and CEO of Northlands. “We hope that these precious family legacies carry on for generations.”

“BMO has proudly supported the Canadian agriculture community for over 200 years, and this is an opportunity for us to give back and recognize the families that are making significant contributions to the rural way of life,” said Lynda Taylor, Regional President of Business Banking, Prairies Central, BMO Bank of Montreal. “The BMO Farm Family Awards recognize the accomplishments and contributions made by farm families and their commitment to growing the good in their communities. Congratulations to this year’s recipient families.
