The Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba, in association with BMO, is pleased to announce plans to once again recognize outstanding farm families in Manitoba.
The BMO Manitoba Farm Family Awards, which has been a regular part of the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair for several years, was created to promote a renewed urban-rural relationship and to recognize outstanding Manitoba farm families who best exemplify the value of the family farm.
This year’s BMO Farm Family Award recipients will be announced and recognized during the 2023 Royal Manitoba Winter Fair, scheduled to run from March 27, 2023 to April 1, 2023 in Brandon’s Keystone Centre.
“For many years, BMO has been a proud supporter of the Canadian agriculture community and the BMO Farm Family Awards,” says Senior Vice President & National Head Agriculture, BMO, Lynda Taylor. “It is evident that all of the families recognized share the same passion, strong business acumen and build on generational knowledge which allows agricultural communities across the country to thrive.”
Nominations for the 2023 BMO Manitoba Farm Family Awards are now being accepted and can be done by visiting our form page.
The families are nominated by friends, family or other members of the community and are chosen by an anonymous panel of local judges.
“Manitoba farm families contribute to both the province and their respective communities in many significant ways,” says Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba General Manager, Mark Humphries. “We’re honoured to have the opportunity to work with BMO in helping to recognize these outstanding members of our community.”
This year’s winners will be invited to a special Awards luncheon in the historic Dome Building during the week of the Fair in March and will be recognized during the evening performance of the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair in Westoba Place.
As well, each family will receive a commemorative yard sign, compliments of BMO, to hang on their farm gate, as well as a family photograph session.
