Dylan Price was born and raised on a mixed-agriculture hobby farm in Abbotsford, British Columbia. A child of inter-generational farmers on both sides of his family back to Russia and Wales, Dylan spent his youth learning the value of growing your own food and respecting the land on which we live. He worked on his uncles’ large-scale berry farms in the summers before moving to Manitoba to pursue higher education in 1995.
Dylan attended Canadian Mennonite Bible College from 1995-1998 before buying a home in Winnipeg’s West Broadway neighbourhood. Later, in 2009, he settled onto a family acreage in 2009 just south of Sanford, Manitoba in Treaty One territory.
After working for a number of years with individuals with disabilities, Dylan returned to the University of Manitoba to complete his social work degree. Currently, Dylan is employed as a social worker, offering support services to individuals in Winnipeg and throughout rural Manitoba who experience complex social issues including poverty, homelessness, addictions, and involvement with the criminal justice system.
On his rural property, Dylan is kept busy with thirty acres of mixed agriculture, including a field that is seeded to grain and oil seeds annually; a large garden and small orchard; pasture land, and approximately twenty wooded acres that run alongside the lovely La Salle River. He shares this space with his partner of twenty-three years, his two daughters, a dog, two cats, and a small flock of laying hens.
