Eric grew up on a mixed farm (grain and beef cattle) in East-Central Alberta. In 1988 he graduated with a BSc. In Agriculture, animal science major, being especially interested in animal nutrition and physiology. His first ‘real’ job was at Calgary Masterfeeds where he specialized in poultry feed. This was something he had not been exposed to very much growing up on a mixed beef farm but it will come in handy as we are planning on raising grass fed chickens in the future. Starting in 1993, Eric was an entrepreneur for 13 years but was forced to sell the business in 2005 due to an accident that resulted in a broken, dislocated hip. At this point, he sold the business and went back to school to get a secondary teaching degree. He worked as a classroom teacher for several years but in 2014 I took a break and worked as the extension and environmental program coordinator at Battle River Research Group. In 2017, He went back to teaching part time at the Brownfield Community School so that there would be more time for the farm. After completing two years there, he resigned and is now ready to be dedicated full time to the farm and marketing beef and the cabin, because that is really what he is passionate about.
