Keith grows corn, soybeans, and wheat outside of Elora, Ontario. In addition to being a full-time farmer, Keith works as a long haul truck driver hauling farm equipment for farmers across North America. The Austins originally started farming in the Rockwood/Milton area before moving closer to Elora in 1970. They were also the first family in their area to own a tractor, a huge leap in technology at that time. Keith farms because of the family legacy ‚Äď he learned how to farm through his parents and continues to pass that tradition on to future generations of the Austin family.
