For decades, Glen and Kelly Hall have been stewarding hundreds of acres of Alberta land in the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, on Timber Ridge Ranch and Glen’s family’s farm. It is their home, their livelihood, and their legacy.
“Our land is our retirement,” Kelly says. “We don’t have cash so that equity and security is something we dearly want to be able to pass to our children and grandchildren. We really need to look after what we have.”
From June to December, the Halls run around 180 Simmental cross cows on this breathtaking piece of the province. It is where their three (now grown) children with their own families were born and raised and only 35 kilometres away from the family farm that Glen grew up on. But getting it to where it is today has been a journey.
