A couple from Glenlea, MB has been named as Manitoba's Outstanding Young Farmers for 2019.
Will and Jen Bergmann picked up the award at a banquet held last weekend at the Elkhorn Resort.
The Bergmann Brothers (Est. 1925) farm canola, corn, wheat, soybeans, oats and pigs. In addition, Will and Jen started a CSA garden that provides organic fruit and vegetables for subscribing families and local restaurants.
They also own a restaurant, Oxbow, near downtown Winnipeg and Will is active on social media, educating thousands about what farmlife looks like.
The other finalists this year were Matt & Josh Verhoog of Moon Shadow Holsteins at Woodridge.
Will and Jen now move onto the national event in Fredericton, NB in December.
