February 23, 2023

In 2023, the Ontario Agricultural Hall of Fame (OAHF) will induct 11 individuals who have made significant impacts on Ontario agriculture and beyond. One of those inductees is Carleton Mackinnon (Mack) Emiry, a dairy farmer who has dedicated his life to the advancement of agriculture in Ontario. His greatest passion in agriculture is soil health and his objective has always been to leave the soil in an improved condition for future generations.


His work as chair of the land stewardship committee evolved into work that led to the development of the environmental farm plan. He has also provided a much-needed voice to many agricultural discussions on behalf of Northern Ontario. Organizations benefiting from his commitment include the Manitoulin West Sudbury Milk Producers’ Association, Ontario Federation of Agriculture, Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association and the provincial Nutrient Management Advisory Committee.

Mack Emiry was nominated by the Manitoulin North Shore Federation of Agriculture. To see the full press release, visit https://www.oahf.on.ca/news-2/2020-inductionceremony/.
