Peer past the gloom in the oilpatch and Alberta agriculture has a pretty good story to tell.

“Producers in Alberta are some of the best in the world, and the land in Alberta is very productive,” said Shane Paterson, the company’s corporate development officer.

“There’s a very bright future ahead for Alberta and Canadian agriculture in general.”

“This is God’s country, after all,” he quipped.
