You can learn a lot by looking at someone’s boots. Just like a book, every boot (and shoe) tells a story.

Farming and ranching are part of an incredibly diverse and demanding industry filled with some of the most hardworking and resilient people imaginable and at AFSC, we have the privilege of being a small part of the story of Alberta agriculture.

Each year, we witness the challenges and triumphs of Alberta’s ag industry, and we honour the drive, dedication, and determination of our producers. Each producer, each agribusiness and each person involved in the industry has their own story of agriculture.

We want to celebrate the agriculture industry — the diversity in people, crops, practices and techniques gives us strength and ensures a bright future for farming in Alberta.

Give us a little glimpse of what it’s like to walk in your boots by sharing your boots and your story with us so we can celebrate farming… together.

Share your story


Share with us what you love about farming or being part of the agriculture industry; why you were drawn to this industry; or what excites you most about the future of agriculture.
