Jennifer Lindgren – 2018 Saskatchewan Outstanding Young Farmer
Jennifer and Jordan Lindgren, along with their four children, own and operate Lindgren Farms at Norquay, Saskatchewan. Lindgren Farms is a 13000 acre grain and oilseed farm and have recently purchased a seed cleaning plant and are excited to be growing pedigree seed this upcoming year. Jennifer and Jordan work diligently at maximizing production for these crops, while minimizing cost of production. They do this by using field scale trials to determine what products, genetics and practices work on their farm. By combining these methods, with the latest advancements in technology, they continue to meet and exceed their production goals.
They not only place importance on educating themselves, but also sharing this information with fellow farmers. They partner with local agriculture distributors to host the “Field of Dreams” tour that is held annually on their farm. It is an opportunity to share trial results from previous years and showcase the current trials that are focussed on new genetics, applications and variable fertilizer rates. Jennifer and Jordan also educate the next generation on the importance of farming and teaching them where their food comes from. They host a “Food Farm” in the spring and fall on their farm. This is an interactive, hands on tour focusing on farm safety, how plants are grown, harvested and then making the connection on how it gets to their plate.
Jennifer and Jordan recently returned from Australia where they were guest speakers at three conferences hosted by the Grains Research and Development Corporation.mThese conferences included farmers and industry leaders from across Australia. They were honored to share their farming story, as well as have the opportunity to make connections with farmers across the globe.
Family and agriculture are the most important aspects of their lives. They take great pride in being able to continue their century family farm and are passionate at maintaining the family aspect in the everchanging corporate farm environment.
