Do you know a deserving farm family to nominate for the Master Farm Family Award of Rocky View County?

The county’s Agricultural Service Board will be accepting nominations for this year’s award until Feb. 28.

Rocky View’s Master Farm Family Award was founded in 1989 and first presented to the WineGlass Ranch southwest of Cochrane. It recognizes a ranch or farm family for their achievements in technical farm production, sustainability practices, team farm business management, agricultural industry involvement, and community service.

Potential winners live and farm in RVC and are upstanding citizens in our community. Winners will be presented in the summer during the county’s Farm Tour.  

Application can be submitted here or by downloading the pdf and mailing or emailing it to the Agricultural Services Board. 

After a two-year pause, the award was presented to Cleveland Ventures Ltd., in the Dalemead area in 2022 and Long Acre Ranch, Earl Munro and Tracy Hanson, in the Yankee Valley area last year.
