Every year, Alberta Agriculture Service Board representatives from local rural municipalities nominate a farm family for their contributions and commitment to agriculture and their communities. All nominees are honored at the Farm Family Award Ceremonies held in conjunction with the Calgary Stampede.
Kneehill County Ag Services Board & Council recognize together, with the Calgary Stampede and Bank of Montreal (BMO) the importance of honoring farm families. Those who best typify the ideals and way of life for the farm family unit and their contributions to the enhancement of the family's quality of life, their rural community, and society.
