Your View: $26.5 million farm sale

The sale of Miner Creek Farms near Tisdale, Sask., to an Alberta Hutterite colony for $26.5 million has been an eye popper for many producers.

By many accounts the farm is an outstanding asset. With 42 quarters touching each other, an 830,000-bushel grain handling system, a farmyard with three homes, and large shop facilities and machinery storage this farm is arguably a dream operation.
