A New Challenge
I have spent many years advocating for agriculture. I’m excited to announce my next step: a director position with the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission.
I believe I have a lot to offer the SaskWheat commission, as a young, progressive farmer that enjoys pushing the boundaries on wheat production. I believe it is crucial for farmers to be at the table for the big discussions around agriculture. At the Global Farmer Roundtable, my eyes were opened to the world beyond the farm. If we want our priorities to be addressed, it is up to us, as farmers, to ensure that happens. This is why I decided to run.
There were 10 candidates seeking a board position, with four seats open. I was fortunate enough to win one of those positions. I will be a director for the next four years.

The Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (SaskWheat) is a producer-led organization established to grow the province’s wheat industry.
Thank you for your support in the election!
Welcome to Leguee Farms!
We are a progressive grain, oilseed and pulse farm located near the small town of Fillmore, Saskatchewan. We currently grow a mix of crops over 12,000 acres of land, spanning more than 30 miles from corner to corner, with a variety of soil types throughout.
The world’s most precious resource is its soil. At Leguee Farms, we strive to protect it from the ravages of wind, rain, and heat, by avoiding tillage and keeping the soil covered wherever possible. Minimum tillage is the backbone of this farm, and has been for the past 25 years.
Over the years, our farm has undergone many changes, from raising cattle, chickens and pigs and farming 600 acres to the modern cash crop enterprise it is today. Agriculture has changed so much over the past few decades, and one thing is for certain – it will continue to change, in ways we cannot yet imagine. Agriculture is a fascinating and vibrant industry, and we are excited to be a part of it.
