Meet The Sawyers


October 28, 2019

Grain farming isn’t for the faint of heart. Matt and Tara Sawyer, together with their three teenage children, grow canola, wheat, and malt barley on a 4,200-acre farm in Acme, Alberta that dates back to 1903. These fourth-generation grain farmers are no strangers to hard work, all year round.


We are pleased to share the second season of CropLife Canada’s Real Farm Lives documentary series featuring The Sawyer Family. Real Farm Lives is a documentary series, created and produced by CropLife Canada, which offers a unique, unfiltered glimpse into the daily lives of Canadians farmers. The series follows farm families from across the country, exploring the everyday challenges they face and the hard work, team spirit and amazing skill that goes into overcoming them.
