Melisa Luymes

I work at the intersection of the farming, the environment and people! 

I grew up on a family farm in Wellington County, lived & traveled overseas and came back to complete a Master’s degree in Rural Sociology at University of Guelph. Since then, I’ve worked in communications, research and project management related to innovation and environmental stewardship. I focus on conservation drainage and manure management for water quality, building bridges between farmers, research and government programming.


As I’ve seen my family work together to grow a successful farm operation, I’m driven to support farm families to improve working relationships and quality of life, creating successful families and businesses.

I've been involved in several farm organizations, and I am also a freelance writer, a regular columnist for the Rural Voice magazine and local history publications. I love travelling, camping, rowing and talking with farmers!
