Fond memories, loving family, and never a dull moment

My grandparents’ farm was always my favourite place to visit growing up, and it continues to be to this day. Located outside a tiny, near-ghost town – Derwent, Alta., northwest of Lloydminster – the farm has always been the prime spot for my dad’s side of the family to get together.

Growing up with several cousins made these visits to the farm extra special, as we had so much space to run around, climb hay bails, and pull each other around in the famous wagon.

Although there aren’t as many animals around here anymore (despite my 88-year-old grandfather wanting to do everything, my family insisted he start to slow down), the farm is still, and always will be, one of my favourite places.
