Growing up and working on our family farm in rural P.E.I. is something I overlooked and took for granted in the past. It’s not just a job or living situation it’s a way of life. Agriculture provides opportunities, challenges, life lessons, early mornings, late nights, tears, smiles, memories, rewards, and the odd reality check. Living and working on our farm since I was very young has educated me on life and defined who I am today, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
