To fulfill our dream in owning a dairy farm, we realized the best move would be to immigrate to Alberta. Having Cees join us was our Lucky ticket, and this is where our farm name comes from.
In 1997 we immigrated from the Netherlands to Canada. Our farm is located 10 km West and 3.5 km South of Lacombe in Sunny Central Alberta. We milk around 220 cows, and in total we own about 500 Holsteins of which the bred heifers and pregnant cows are housed at our second farm named, Lucky Lincoln Dairy. The forage is cultivated on 900 acres. Corn, alfalfa and canola are our main crops.
You can imagine there is never a dull moment at Lucky Hill!
