I am a 3rd generation grain farmer in Baldonnel BC. We focus primarily on the production of wheat, barley, oats, canola and grasses for seed production. I am passionate about doing research trials on our own land to adapt and maximize our farming practices to meet environmental conditions. As a young farmer I work to continually educate myself and the future generation along with our local and provincial governments to the challenges farmers face in the ag sector and the necessary changes required in order to stay competitive.
I am employed on my family farm located in the Tower Lake between Dawson Creek and Fort St John. We grow mostly canola, peas and cereals. I have previous work experience in ag retail, environmental consulting and research.

Director About 72 km north of Dawson Creek are 3,500 acres of wheat, barley, oats, canola, and fescue. This is where Robert grew up. He bought his parents’ farm and continues the family tradition of growing grain. Independence and self-reliance are values he shares with his young family along with the satisfaction of working outdoors. Robert is a modern farmer who believes not only in contributing to food security for BC and Canada, but also in growing the ability of BC farmers and ranchers to market their products worldwide.
