Stephen Boersma, 52 weeks of #YOURFARMERS

"I'm studying crops now every day, and it's just amazing what they're capable of."

Stephen’s family grows corn, soybeans, and winter wheat on their farm near Exeter, ON, where they also raise broiler chickens and grow white beans. His grandparents began farming when they came over from the Netherlands in the mid 1950's. Eventually, his father was able to quit his off-farm job as a truck driver to join the farm full-time. Now, Stephen and his brothers are involved in the day to day operation, and their grandparents have retired.

By Lauren Barker, 2017 Grain Discovery Zone Ambassador

It was another successful year on the road for the Grain Discovery Zone. We went to over 25 different events, reaching all different demographics. This year was special as we attended about 6 new locations! There was a lot of interest in Ontario grains at all the venues we attended.
