On Sept. 1, the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) announced the Manning Family Farm, in Falmouth, N.S., as the recipient of The Environmental Stewardship Award (TESA) for 2021.

The farm is owned and operated by Dean and Catherine Manning. They left their off-farm careers about 25 years ago to return to the second-generation family farm where Dean was raised. They’ve continued and expanded on the conservation practices that Dean’s parents, Malcolm and Gail, put in place, creating an efficient and profitable mixed farming operation that works very much in harmony with the environment.

The Mannings have 80 head of commercial and purebred beef cattle on about 500 acres, along with a greenhouse and market garden for vegetable production that’s marketed through weekly local farm markets, and an online store; they also wholesale their vegetables to other farm markets in the area. |READ MORE
