On February 16, 2017 poultry farmers Marc & Hinke Therrien were named Alberta/NWT Outstanding Young Farmers for 2017!
Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers Program recognizes young farmers who exemplify excellence in their profession. Eligible nominees must be farm operators between 18 and 39 who derive a minimum of two-thirds of their income from their farm operations. Each year one farming couple is selected from each of the program’s seven Regional Recognition Events to represent their respective region at the National Recognition Event.
We wish them the best of luck as they journey to Penticton at the end of November to participate in the Young Farmers of Canada event.
