BMO Farm Family Awards Nomination Form

The application deadline for the 2021 BMO Farm Family Awards has been extended until August 27, 2021. Municipalities eligible to nominate a farm family in 2021 have been contacted.

Please email for more information.


For 50 years, farm families from northern and central Alberta communities have been recognized as the recipients of the BMO Farm Family Award. The Northern and Central Agricultural Service Boards select outstanding families who best represent values of the family farm within their rural community. The award honours both their farming business practices and community involvement. Each recipient receives a commemorative gate sign and are honoured at the BMO Farm Family Awards Gala.
