Doerksen Farms History
We have a rich history and our belief is that our present day operation is an extension of and tribute to the hard work and commitment of the first and second generations of our family in Canada. Our grandparents, Peter and Tina Doerksen came to Canada in 1926 and eventually settled on the farm we still call our home yard in 1932. We are privileged to have the second generation with us and still enjoying life. Our parents, Jake and Anne Doerksen are retired and live in Strathmore, Alberta.
Please visit our History section of this website again soon as we will be including a more detailed history of our farm and family. We look forward to future opportunities and remain thankful and indebted to our parents and grandparents for the rich heritage we have in terms of experience, relationship and opportunity.

We raise commercial and registered Hereford and Angus cattle pastured on dry and irrigated pasture. Water for irrigation is sourced through the Eastern Irrigation district from the Bow River and significantly increases the per acre production of our land base.
