Field to Plate
Joel and his wife Cheryl have run the Bent Nail Café in Mossbank, SK for the past 3 years. He and his family live on their century old family farm where Joel manages Lake of the Rivers Ranch - a medium sized grass fed cattle operation that supplies the café with all its beef needs for sandwiches, soups, taco salads and their famous Bent Nail Burger. The ranch also sells beef direct to consumers; an avenue Joel hopes to expand in the future. Outside of farming and restauranteuring, Joel is active in the community coaching volleyball, leading music at church, serving on numerous boards and committees, and chasing his kids around the country side to their various activities.
