Jeff and Ebony Prosko have a passion for Agriculture, and it shows! Life for them revolves around their family farm in the small town of Rose Valley, Saskatchewan. Jeff and Ebony along with their daughters Harper and Londyn raise grains and oilseeds in the northeast area of the province. Although they operate their own farm they also work hand in hand with Jeff’s parents Rick and Donna as well as his brother Joel (Meghan) and sister Giselle (Reagen). In addition to operating their farms the group also owns an independent ag retail business called ProSoils Inc. which they started in 2013 and serves the Rose Valley area.
Jeff and Ebony work hard to be innovative and show leadership in the agricultural community. Jeff sits on several industry boards that play roles in policy at the provincial and federal levels as well as groups focused on networking and education. He has a specific interest in advancing good policy for young farmers as their needs tend to be different and unique based on the ever-changing challenges they face.
The focus on their farm is maximizing production efficiency and getting the best yields and quality they can from their crops. They utilize technologies such as variable rate fertilizer and seed applications, sectional control equipped air drills and sprayers along with RTK guidance and the latest seed genetics. Their goal is to constantly evolve and improve all aspects of their business
