Our Vision

Green Horizon Industrial
Legacy Barn Events

The Legacy Farm Project is deeply rooted in history, tracing its origins back to the establishment of Canadian Pacific Railway (C.P.R.) in 1881. The C.P.R. aimed to encourage settlers to establish homesteads along its route and undertook irrigation projects to make unsuitable lands productive. The Strathmore Supply Farm, established in 1908, played a vital role, renowned for its dairy herd's productivity and livestock breeding program.

The Legacy Farm Project's vision is to become a leading agricultural tourism destination and business hub in the Calgary region. It encompasses various land use areas, including Legacy Farm, an RV resort and seniors village, highway commercial spaces, institutional and educational sites, and an agri-industry area.

Our mission is to be an internationally recognized destination for Agricultural Stewardship, Tourism, and Innovation, fostering community connections, educating visitors, and promoting agri-business. The project symbolizes the convergence of AgriTourism, AgriProcessing, and AgriInnovation, with a commitment to sustainability, cultural appreciation, and the fusion of past and future agriculture.

In collaboration with various MOUs, the Legacy Farm Project bridges the past and future of agriculture. Our partnerships aim to advance agricultural stewardship, tourism, and innovation while preserving our unique histories. We aspire to attain international recognition and inspire future generations by celebrating the profound link between our past and visionary future.
