  Canada's Outstanding Young Farmers Program (OYF) is a unique program designed to recognize farmers and farm couples who exemplify excellence in their profession. The program is open to farmers or couples who derive at least two-thirds of their income from farming operations.

Ontario is one of seven regions. Each region holds an event where local nominees are judged on specific criteria. All regional winners represent their areas at an annual national event where they compete to be named Canada's Outstanding Young Farmers.

Congratulations to our 2016

Ontario Regional Winners!

Adrian and Jodi Roelands, Lampton Shores

We are the founders and owners of Roelands Plant Farms Inc., a greenhouse in Southwestern Ontario where we custom grow premium cucumber, tomato, and pepper seedlings for sale to vegetable production greenhouses. This type of operation is referred to as a propagation greenhouse, and is one of only seven operations of its kind in North America.

Please click on the "News" tab to see the complete details of this winning farm. See our alumni for all our past regional and national winners.
