"After growing up as a farm kid, it led me to pursue a career in agriculture and I couldn't be happier to carry on that tradition."
Paige's family has been farming since 1854 in the Elmwood, ON area. The Leifso family raises beef cattle, and they also grow grains like corn, soybeans, and wheat, and alfalfa. Today, two generations continue to farm together: her dad, uncle, and brother still work on the family farm. After graduating from the University of Guelph Ridgetown Campus, earning an Associate Diploma in Agriculture, Paige works off-farm in the agriculture industry. She always returns home to help during the busy planting and harvest seasons.
