Evan Shout’s story is one of perseverance and dedication in the face of uncertainty and change. Evan grew up on a family farm but entered the workforce at a time when “there was no money in farming”. This pushed him to achieve his professional designation in accounting before he decided to return to the farm to take a shot at his dream. Shortly after leaving the corporate world, he received the diagnosis of autism for his first-born son. Plans changed as he and his wife returned to the city to access the resources not available in rural Saskatchewan. Years later he would seize an opportunity to return to agriculture in a unique way and truly find his purpose helping primary producers build their businesses and create their own legacies.
