Farm to Fork Tour 2017
In 1914, Irvin Heuchert's grandparents moved to Saskatchewan from North Dakota and bought their homestead in the spring of 1916. The farm had a good house and established yard and the original barn and granary are still standing today. Irvin's son Randy, his wife Yolanda and their three sons, Leland, Decland and Ryland, now live on the farm and the boys are the fifth generation of Heucherts to inhabit the place. Irvin and his wife Lois live in Saskatoon and he commutes to and from the farm every day. Through the generations, the Huecherts have produced beef and dairy cattle, hogs and chickens. Today, they only grow grain and seed 3,500 acres per year with canola, oats, peas, and wheat in rotation.
