IN FOCUS”

Local Business “In Focus”

This is the last installment of the “In Focus” article as my work with the Village has come to a close (Dec 2017).

The “In Focus” was a local Economic Development initiative and each month our Forestburg newsletter and Facebook page provided an “In Focus” review of services and background on a local business.  The objective was to promote local business and encourage residents to shop locally; there by supporting independent business, which in turn would help our community remain strong and vibrant.

BBK FARMS LTD. – A NEW BUSINESS IN FORESTBURG

This month “In Focus” looks at BBK Farms Ltd owned and operated by Blair and Becky Kuefler who live right here in Forestburg. BBK Farms Ltd. is not a new business as they were established in September 2016 and operated out their family farm in Galahad.

However, they are opening a new store front/warehouse right here in Forestburg, at 4810 43 Ave. (in the Industrial Park).  Their new sign will be going up soon.

Blair has a crop science degree and Becky has an AG business degree.  They are an independent Sale Representative for Pioneer© brand products.  In addition to selling high quality Pioneer© seed they offer scouting services to their customers. They are now branching out into corn and have a corn planter, for rent, to better serve their customers.

Along with their family farm in Galahad they also have acreage North of Forestburg on Highway 856.  Last year you may have noticed the Pioneer© signs on the left side of the highway as you headed North out of Forestburg.  This was canola research being conducted in conjunction with Pioneer© and BBK Farms limited.  The research involved using 7 different types of Hybrid canola seed, each planted on 2 acers of land.  Explore the different varieties and search the local trial results at https://www.pioneer.com/home/site/ca .

For more sales or rental information contact Becky or Blair.
