Greenview CEO Honors Farming Family of the Year

Jerome and Liz Issac saw their commitment to agricultural excellence and community involvement recognized, winning the Greenview Farming Family of the Year 2021 award.

The Isaac family is made up of third generation farmers, as Jerome’s grandfather moved to the Harper Creek area and broke up the land for homestead in 1936.

The couple manage thousands of acres of cropland, including a barn full of chickens and a feed mill at Harper Creek Agro. The award honors both their agricultural business practices and their community involvement.

“Greenview is proud to recognize farming families who represent strong values ​​in their farming practices,” said Reeve Tyler Olsen. “The Isaac family is an exceptional example of successive farmers who continually contribute to their community.

For more than 50 years, farm families in northern and central Alberta have been recognized and honored with the Farm Family Award. The Agricultural Service Boards of Northern and Central Alberta nominate exceptional families who best represent the values ​​of the family farm within their community.

The Municipal District of Greenview No. 16 is the third largest rural municipality in Alberta. Greenview includes the towns of Fox Creek and Valleyview, the hamlets of Little Smoky, Ridgevalley, DeBolt, Landry Heights, Grovedale and Grande Cache.

The Isaac family is one of 25 families who were recognized on November 12, 2021 at the Farm Family Awards banquet held at Farmfair International in Edmonton, Alberta.
