Maggie McDonnell, 52 weeks of #YOURFARMERS

Maggie McDonnell

        I’m proud to be part of the next generation of our farm, and to be teaching the public why they shouldn’t fear the food that farmers grow.

Maggie grew up on a grains and nursery pig farm with her parents and older brother. McDonnells grow corn, soybeans, and wheat on their farm just south of Monkton, Ontario. They also operate a grain elevator and provide custom farming services to neighbouring farmers, like spraying, harvesting, and planting.

Maggie is currently working towards a diploma in Agriculture from the University of Guelph, Ridgetown Campus. She also wants to earn a degree in agribusiness and become a certified crop advisor (CCA). When she’s not studying, Maggie works off the farm doing canola research, as well as working along her parents and brother at home.
