Grower Stories - Bruce Rampton

1-C-Bruce Rampton


Bruce Rampton will tell you that he owes 95% of his success on the farm to his grandfather’s decision to move. “My grandfather came to Canada and started farming elsewhere. Two years later he moved here to good soil,” says Bruce who farms near Dauphin, Manitoba. Bruce is a third-generation farmer with a family history in dairy farming, but a current love of grain farming. “I love the distinct four seasons in grain farming; you start something and you finish something,” he says. Cattle, on the other hand, are the same 365 days a year and don’t like change. For Bruce, farming comes with challenges, but he enjoys them. He explained his philosophy; “When things happen, we adapt and go forward.”
