Canada Celebrates it’s Outstanding Young Farmers – Barb Stefanyshyn-Cote

RealAgriculture.com was started out of a passion for and a love of agriculture. Since we started, one of our goals here has been to promote an understanding and an appreciation of agriculture and the people involved in it.

I spoke to Barb Stefanyshyn-Cote about some of the details of the program and why its important for all Canadian Farmers.
