Hello, I'm Eric N.
I grew up on a mixed farm (grain and beef cattle) in East-Central Alberta. In 1988 I graduated with a BSc. In Agriculture, animal science major, being especially interested in animal nutrition and physiology. My first ‘real’ job was at Calgary Masterfeeds where I specialized in poultry operations. This was something I had not been exposed to very much growing up on a mixed beef farm.. Starting in 1993, I was an entrepreneur for 13 years but we were forced to sell the business in 2005 due to an accident that resulted in my broken, dislocated hip. At this point, I sold our business and went back to school to get my secondary teaching degree with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry. I worked as a classroom teacher for several years but in 2014 I took a break and for three years worked as the extension and environmental program coordinator at Battle River Research Group . During this time, we decided to go back to our farming roots because of all the innovative and interesting practices that I was learning about at BRRG, and I wanted to begin to apply them to our operations. In 2017, I went back to teaching part time at the Brownfield Community School so that I would have more time for the farm. After completing two years there, I resigned and am now dedicated full time to our farm and marketing our beef and our cabin, because that is really what I am passionate about.
