Jeremy Wind (Class of 1999)

Jeremy Wind grew up in Southern Alberta, graduating first from Taber Christian School in 1996 and then from Immanuel Christian High School in 1999.  After high school, he went on to complete his diploma in Heavy Equipment at Olds College.  Before joining the family potato farm, Jeremy spent a season custom combining in the southern United States, and Australia.

After many years of farming alongside his parents and brother, Jeremy and his wife Erin started Windview Farms in 2021, continuing the family tradition of growing potatoes, as well as branching out into sweet potatoes.  He has been quick to embrace technological advances in farming, as well as partnering with Advanced Ag, a local biological technology company, in the development of ACF-SR, a highly concentrated biological that performs important plant growth promoting functions within the soil.

Jeremy has combined his passion for farming and concern for those less fortunate in his involvement with the Canadian Food Grains Bank, serving the past 5 years as the chairperson for the Taber Foodgrains Project.  Each year, local farmers join together to plant, grow and harvest a crop with all proceeds being donated to the Canadian Food Grains Bank, joining hundreds of other growing projects across the country. Over the past 27 years, the Taber Growing Project has donated $2.4M to alleviate world hunger.

Jeremy and his wife Erin live in Purple Springs with their five children.  You can follow Windview Farms online to learn more, as well as the Taber Growing Project.
