"Economics is a big part of farming, and those in it must stay on top of the changing economic world to remain in agriculture."

Steven owns and operates Bycrest Farms Ltd. with his wife Debbie and his son Andrew. The Byvelds family's farm is near Williamsburg in Dundas County. After Steven's parents emigrated from The Netherlands in 1962, they purchased and began Bycrest Farms as a dairy operation. Steven and Debbie purchased the farm in 1999, and they began to transition to the current 1,280 acre corn and soybean operation.

"The grains we produce are used for food, seed, and animal feed. Growing high quality, high yield crops with careful stewardship is important to our whole family."

Andrew and Julie Hough grow corn, soybeans and wheat south of Napanee in Eastern Ontario. Andrew is the eight generation family member to farm at their location, a tradition which goes back to the United Empire Loyalist settlers in 1784.
