The Municipal District of Greenview joins Explore Edmonton and the Bank of Montreal in celebrating the 2021 Greenview Farm Family of the year, Jerome and Liz Isaac of Harper Creek Agro.
The couple manages several thousand acres of cropland, a barn full of chickens and a feed mill. The Isaac family are third-generation farmers, with Jerome's grandfather coming to the Harper Creek area and breaking land for a homestead in 1936.
For more than 50 years, farm families from northern and central Alberta communities have been recognized as recipients of the Farm Family Award. Agricultural Service Boards from northern and central Alberta nominate outstanding families who best represent the values of the family farm within their rural community. The award honours both their farming business practices and community involvement.
“Greenview is proud to recognize farm families who represent strong values in their farming practices,” said Reeve Tyler Olsen. “The Isaac Family is an exceptional example of successional farmers who continually contribute to their community.”
Jerome and Liz Isaac of Harper Creek Agro were among 25 farm families recognized at the November 12, 2021, Farm Family Awards Banquet held during Farmfair International in Edmonton, AB.
