An open space in the forest with a view of a narrow creek going into the mountains

Kidd Bros. ranch, originally homesteaded in 1913, and located near Mayerthorpe, Alberta is home to Bob Kidd and his family. Bob tells the story of ranching as a business of generations. How his family before him carved out a living, called agriculture, when stewardship was just common sense. The challenges of agriculture have changed over the years, but stewardship of the land has not.

“My farming experience began with helping my father and two uncles. From them I learned a respect for the land and the value of working together. They opened my eyes to stewardship, they called it common sense.”
