Sessions

Lesley is the head and heart behind the blog, High Heels & Canola Fields. She grew up on her family’s grain farm at Watrous, Saskatchewan and after gaining an education in marketing and accounting, went on to work in various marketing and branding positions in the ag sector, such as Cargill, ATB Financial, Farm Credit Canada and is currently the Brand Manager at WorkHorse Hub. Using her entrepreneurial spirit and the skills developed through her agribusiness career, she created a snack food business using the barley grown on her farm. Lesley's passion and goal is to help make the industry better and stronger and she does this by sharing the story of how great agriculture is and by bringing people together and building community. In December 2015, she started her blog in hopes to dispel myths and bring consumers and farmers closer. In 2017, she expanded her reach by joining as co-host on the Farmer and the City Girl podcast which explores various topics in food and farming through real life conversations. Through humour, storytelling and photography, Lesley has connected with people from across the world to engage in conversations about agriculture. Her and her husband are active on the family farm and live with their two boys in Regina.
