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 – he learned how to farm through his parents and continues to pass that tradition on to future generations of the Austin family.
