Agricultural Awards & Bursaries

Supporting and Recognizing the Agricultural Community

Agricultural producers have been the backbone of our region for more than a century. Lac Ste. Anne County acknowledges the contributions of the agricultural community by providing a number of annual awards and bursaries.

Alberta Century Farm & Ranch Award

This award recognizes farm families who have gone through hard work and have the desire to carry on what was 100 years ago, a dream, then a reality and now a family tradition. These farm families have continuously owned and actively farmed or ranched the same parcel of land that have not rented out to persons outside of the family for 100 years or more and at the time of application. This is an Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development program. Nomination brochures are available at the County office or online from Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development.

Lac Ste. Anne 100 Year Homesteader

This program recognizes families celebrating the ownership of the family farm in Lac Ste. Anne County for 100 years or more.
