Farming in Northern Alberta.

In This Podcast:

Farming in Northern Canada can be challenging due to short growing seasons and soil so thick that only resilient plants survive. However, Neil Boyd understands the land better than most and he also knows the secrets to successful farming while being a sustainable land steward. Listen in to learn about cool season crop rotation, the importance of no till seeding, and the type of “trash” that is good for the environment.

Neil was born and raised on a fourth-generation farm which was originally homesteaded by his grandfather in 1913. Through the years he has attended a college of agriculture and been involved with plant and animal research organizations. Along with his wife Ruby, plus family and friends, the land now produces cool season grain crops in a way that preserves the soil.  Besides farming, he is currently the vice-president of the Feathered Pipe Foundation, a Yoga retreat center in Montana, and has done volunteer work in Africa with water filter systems and youth leadership training.
