2019 SPEAKER

Kendall Ballantine

At 27 years old, Kendall Ballantine shook up life as she knew it and traded in her high-paying corporate career for a life on the farm. As a first generation farmer and the owner of Central Park Farms in Langley she’s made it a goal to help develop support around local agriculture here in the Fraser Valley. Over the past 5 years, Kendall has focused her business around pasture and free range meat and is proud to help play a part in feeding our community. 

“I never set out to be a farmer, it just sort of happened, but once it did it became my goal to help share the stories of not only my journey in agriculture but that of my peers. We’re at a pivotal point in local food where consumers are once again wanting to know the people behind their meal.”
