Double F Farms started in 1985 as a wheat field and began transforming into the operation it is today consisting of 4000 mother cows, an 8000 head feedlot and a 10 000 acre cropping enterprise. Harvey’s focus was on building a sustainable operation that is competitive so the next generation can succeed.
The cow/calf operation has been at the heart of the operation since the beginning and the old adage holds true “hold onto the cows tail and she will pull you through” The swings that are common in the commodity cycles brought about the diversification that is evident in the operation and allowed for its continued success.
Craig returned home in 2004 after travel and working abroad in Australia and getting an Ag Business Degree from the University of Alberta. Farming, cattle, growth and expansions were at the forefront of his return to Double F.
With lots of progress and production Double F faced acute labour shortage and sourced overseas labour from Australia, Ireland, Sweden and Ukraine. We are grateful to the hard work and dedication of our staff as they play a key role in our business.
