When John Coté and Barb Stefanyshyn-Coté sold their 3,000 acre grain farm near Leask, Sask., four years ago, they had several prerequisites in mind for their next endeavour.
“First, we wanted to do something that would get us working directly with the customer. We enjoy that interaction with people. Secondarily, no matter what we did, it had to be fun,” says Barb.
They had options. John and Barb are both professional agrologists. Barb received the Outstanding Young Agrologist award from the Saskatchewan and Canadian Institute of Agrologists. She and John were Saskatchewan and Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers in 2001.
