What brought you and your family to Bezanson?
“18 years ago, I met my husband. He owed some land by Bezanson and had a “few” cows. I owned a condo in downtown Edmonton. I thought it would be easier for me to move here than him and his cows to move to Edmonton. We bought a trailer, moved it onto his land and moved in!”
