Drew Jeffery from Pownal, PEI is a great example of the young people on PEI who have chosen to make agriculture their occupation and passion.  Drew is the owner of MacRae/Jeffery Farm and he grows over 800 acres of certified organic soybeans, clover silage, pasture, milling wheat, hulless oats, buckwheat and barley.

Besides the field crops, MacRae/Jeffery Farm operates a conventional Cow/calf beef herd and custom backgrounds feeder calves and is also considering transitioning the livestock into organic production.

Drew Jeffery takes care to manage his farm in an environmentally sustainable manner and also gives back to the industry by sitting on the board of the PEI Certified Organic Producers Co-op.
