Winners of Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers for 2017 celebrated

Cover Crop Innovator members Derek and Tannis Axten of Axten Farms in Minton, Sask. were recently named one of the National winners for Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmer for 2017 awarded on Dec. 1. What's so special about this is they represent a new breed of farmers that don't fit in either a conventional or an organic way of farming. The keystone of their success is reducing inputs by fostering the natural biological process of the soil – letting nature do the work! Congratulations on a well deserved Provincial award and winning in the Nationals!
