Ben McFarlane

Ben McFarlane, six, is a third generation beef and crop farmer-in-training. His family owns Windyvue Farms Ltd. outside of Guelph, ON. Farm life is fun and busy says McFarlane. He loves to spend time in the barn with his dad and ride in the combine during corn harvest. Staying safe around farm equipment and taking good care of the cows and land are among his important life lessons. He hopes to grow up and be a farmer like his father and grandfather before him. He is excited and looking forward to using new technology in the future including “bigger tractors and combines!”
