The Ontario OYF program draws its finalists from all sectors of Ontario’s diverse agricultural industry. Many alumni are influential throughout our industry and we have a strong body of 100 alumni award winners over the past 30 years. Each year’s finalists represent all that is best in our industry. The success of these young farmers is due in part to the vast amount of support they receive from agribusiness. The enthusiasm for agriculture and love of family are common themes that bind us all together.

The Outstanding Young Farmers group is a rich and vibrant agricultural community of innovative, positive and progressive leaders. They face the challenges of agriculture head on with tireless enthusiasm that is rarely seen in other industries.   OYF honours true excellence in agriculture. Sponsorship of OYF sends a powerful message to your customers as to the high ideals of your company. We want you and your company to join us on September 15th 2020 as Ontario Outstanding Young Farmers celebrates excellence in agriculture.
