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

Gramineae Red Angus, located near Tofield, Alberta is a 4th generation ranching operation set amid copses of aspen, pothole sloughs and Amisk Creek, which flows through the heart of the ranch. But Gramineae Red Angus is also set atop a source of energy desired by industry. Lyle’s humour and wit encourages some thoughtful contemplation of agriculture as a way of life, and the connection to land that often ties us to place.

“It is true I don’t have the power to keep a forced sale from changing my life, but I don’t have to let the threat of it change how I care for the land.”
