Nominations are now being accepted for Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers’ program.

The program recognizes farmers that exemplify excellence in their profession and promote the tremendous contribution of agriculture and rural Canada. 

Nominees may be an individual, couple or managing partner/shareholder of a farm group.

To qualify, the nominee must derive a minimum of two-thirds of gross revenue from farming, have an invested interest in the farming operation, and not have reached the age of 40 as of January 1 of this year.

Information on the program, qualifications, and nomination forms are available on the Saskatchewan Outstanding Young Farmers website.

Nominations close on February 15th. 

The 2019 winner will be selected at the Saskatchewan regional event being held in Regina from June 19-20. 

Jordan and Jennifer Lindgren, from Norquay, were Saskatchewan's 2018 Outstanding Young Farmers.
