Kristen Hall has been working in the agriculture industry for 13 years in a multitude of different capacities. Hall has always had a passion for agriculture and those involved in it, and has been lucky to work with so many great farmers, ranchers and growers since she started. Hall graduated from Olds College in 2013 with a diploma in Agriculture Management and with a major in Marketing. She has used this in her different positions as a Farm Manager, but also in an office setting with Alberta Farm Animal Care.
3 years ago, Hall got into beekeeping, and is looking forward to the Advancing Ag Program so that she can learn more about the valuable and essential relationship between bees and different crops used in Agriculture. She looks forward to working with her mentor and exploring the crop sector more in depth. Hall currently has 35 Hives, but hopes to expand to 70 during the 2021 season.
So far in the Advancing Ag journey, Hall has been working on looking for events that are still going forward, and has found it challenging to find relevant programming that links the two sectors together. That being said, she is up for the challenge and can’t wait to see where this opportunity will take her. Ultimately, she hopes that she can meet some great people and make lifelong connections that will help to advance her career in agriculture!
