By Farm & Food Care
Sandy was raised in Toronto but always dreamed of farming.
Forty years ago, she convinced her husband to move out to a farm near Milton where she raised nine children and a herd of beef cattle. She’s been secretary for her local cattlemen’s association for more than 20 years and serves on her region’s Agricultural Advisory Committee.
As an octogenerian, she still works full time on the farm and says her favourite part of the job is seeing the newborn calves born each spring.
