Introducing . . . Rebecca Grummett!

By December 14, 2023Newsletter

Raised in the farming hamlets of Southwestern Ontario, Rebecca’s childhood was shaped by the sights and sounds of rural life. Memories of her childhood were spent tapping trees in her family’s sugar bush and helping them each year with the timely preparation of maple syrup. Although she now calls Alberta home, every spring she still returns to her family’s farm and helps during sugar season. Ensuring to include her young children in a cherished tradition that binds the generations together.

Professionally Rebecca has spent the last 5 years in the realm of new home warranty where she navigated the complexities of ensuring the comfort and satisfaction of homeowners. This chapter not only showcased her versatility but also revealed her knack for forming meaningful connections and relationships with people—a trait that would become a hallmark of her journey.

The narrative took an unexpected twist when Rebecca was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. After taking a year off to focus on her health, she emerged as a survivor, demonstrating a strength that echoed the hardy spirit of the maple trees she had grown up around. With a newfound appreciation for life’s fragility, Rebecca has ventured into the agricultural industry. Despite being a newcomer in this age-old industry, she brings the same authenticity and love for connecting with others and meeting them precisely where they are in their needs.

Rebecca’s journey is a testament to her adaptability and open mindedness. From the familiarity of maple syrup production to the challenges and rewards of the corporate world to now the vast and dynamic landscape of agriculture, her stories narrative shows that of growth, exploration, and connection.

“In a world that sometimes moves to fast, remember to enjoy the simple joys, celebrate the beauty of simplicity, and foster a world where humans and nature coexist in harmony” – Rebecca G.

Market Report – Ashley Tompkins

Everyone is hoping for a little Christmas Miracle when it comes to the grain markets, although there seems to be a few bright spots, like the peas, most commodities are chugging along at a bearish pace. The new year may bring new challenges as we head toward a global economic uncertainty, but one thing is for sure we are always grateful for all our producers, buyers, and carriers that we have had the pleasure of working with over the past year and look forward to working with you all again in the New Year.

In terms of the markets, peas took a giant leap this week as India temporarily lifts their import ban, the prices jumped $2.50/bu for #2 yellow peas and green peas saw a $2/bu price hike. We have seen yellow pea prices as high as $14/bu delivered and green peas as high as $18/bu delivered. Now is the time to take advantage of these bullish prices as they may be short-lived.

Graded wheat and feed wheat seem to be moving in an upward direction, with some small gains this week. Prices range from $9/bu FOB to $7.50/bu FOB depending on where you are located.

Freight is getting booked up fast for January movement, it’s becoming a challenge for those looking to move at the beginning of the year. Come January we are only 2.5 months away from the possibility of Road Bans creating another challenge for movement.

Have a wonderful holiday season and a joyous New Year!

Seller’s tip: Although it may be hard to believe but the new growing season will be here before we know it, and booking in loads early will ensure you aren’t getting caught trying to move during road bans or the warmer weather.
