BC Dairy Farmer
Rene Miedema and his father Bouwe are dairy farmers in Enderby, BC, where they own and operate Bomi Farms. Bouwe immigrated to Vancouver from Holland, spent some time working in Sicamous, and eventually bought Bomi Farms in 1976 — the year after Rene was born.
Being raised on a dairy farm, Rene was taught the importance of loving the animals and working the crops. Like his father, he too believes that the farm is a perfect place to raise his family with his wife, Jessica.
Everyday on the farm is different and the Miedema’s take on the daily challenges with pride. Bouwe is a wealth of knowledge and always points Rene in the right direction; together they work as a team because they love what they do. In Bouwe’s words, “You gotta love what you do, or you won’t succeed”.
