A new opportunity

Posted on by Teri Jenkins

Jon and I are excited to announce that we are moving to Manitoba in May!

We have decided to join my Mom's farm business: it’s the best way for us to reach our farming goals, and we are excited to have such a thriving business to become a part of.  Two young farmers could not be so lucky, and now we will be closer to family (including Jon’s) as well.

Jon and I have been living in Nova Scotia for the past 3 years.  We have gained lots of experience and are ready to put our blood, sweat and tears into building equity for ourselves.  We will be joining Mom in May and with a four person team we are all excited to step things up a few notches!

50masseyJon will be focusing on making the most of his skills in production; I (Teri) will be focusing on marketing and harvest/value adding; Stephanie will continue to do it all, from seeding to sales and also provide valuable mentorship in working with the soil, Manitoba climate and crop systems; and Paul (who already has a tractor for Jon) will provide business mentorship, and share his vast equipment maintenance & repair knowledge with Jon.

This opportunity is ripe for the picking, and we are looking forward to grabbing it by the *ahem* tomatoes!
