Meet the Bishops

As third generation dairy farmers, Geoff and Jennifer Bishop are continuing a family legacy that began over 40 years ago. From a single cow that Geoff’s Grandfather purchased in 1970, Bishop Farms Ltd. has grown to a 150 cow Holstein herd.

The couple first met at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College. After graduation, Geoff set out to gain additional farming experience in England and New Zealand before returning home to Annapolis Royal.

With a clear focus on goals and innovation, Geoff and Jennifer have made continuous improvements to their operation and their community. They are both active in associations, community service groups and recreational activities. The Bishops were recently named Atlantic Canada’s 2011 outstanding Young Farmers.

Today, Geoff and Jennifer are living their passion for agriculture and working to instill enthusiasm and stewardship of land with their 4 children – Luke, Emma, Matthew and Ryan.
