On February 22, 2022, the Ministry of Agriculture celebrated Canada’s Agriculture Day with our second annual photo contest. It was another very successful celebration with 188 photos submitted. Our first-place winner this year was Michelle Temple with her farming family’s submission that received 240 likes, 49 comments and nine shares.
When mom is away, the boys will play. Michelle was away for a work conference and her husband Kevin snapped this adorable shot of their son, Brant, while he was taking a break from helping dad with seeding to play in the dirt. The Temple family values the history agriculture has given their family and still believe that the farm is the best place to raise their kids.
In addition to the photo star Brant (now six) who is the unofficial foreman of the farm, there is Ava (15) who loves working all jobs that the farm offers and Kierra (17) who is heading to the University of Saskatchewan to study agriculture in the fall. The Temple family has loved to watch their family roots, cattle and crops grow. They understand how special the agriculture industry really is and are happy to share that with others.
Be sure to keep an eye out for next year’s contest to share your own special photos!
