Agriculture in  Alberta

Alberta is a province of two essential components: rural Alberta, the fundamental building block for our society and urban Alberta, where most of our population resides and works.

Alberta agriculture is rich in history stemming back hundreds of years. Traditions passed down through the generations. Through world wars, the Great Depression, changes in technology, new crops, new markets, new everything…Alberta farm operations have endured. Alberta agriculture embodies what’s great about our rural communities, our province, and our country.

"Agriculture is our wisest pursuit because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals and happiness." 

Thomas Jefferson
