Kristjan Hebert is the visionary leader, President and CEO of The Hebert Group, a suite of agricultural enterprises that includes Hebert Grain Ventures, Maverick Ag, Farmer Coach, and the Deep Roots Foundation. The legacy mission of Hebert Group is to improve the quality of soil, financial stability, team dynamics, community contribution, and industry benchmarks for generations to come. This commitment to excellence garnered the group the 2022 EY Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Hebert Grain Ventures, managed by Kristjan Hebert, is a 30,000-acre grain and oilseed operation in Southeast Saskatchewan. This entity serves as the parent corporation, pioneering advancements in agricultural technology and management practices.

Herbert Grain Ventures collaborates synergistically with Maverick Ag, a business risk management and consulting firm located in both Saskatoon and Moosomin. Maverick Ag, under Kristjan’s guidance, functions as a vital intermediary between Hebert Grain Ventures and the wider agricultural industry, offering invaluable insights derived from both setbacks and successes, all aimed at disrupting industry conventions.

Another innovative initiative led by Kristjan Hebert is Farmer Coach, a one-of-a-kind, ongoing business management program tailored specifically for primary producers. This program features courses grounded in practical strategies that are tested and approved by experienced farm managers and entrepreneurs.

Kristjan Hebert is well known for his thought leadership when it comes to agriculture, scaling, farming innovation and business growth. Kristjan is a Certified Public Accountant and has gained significant experience working at MNP.

As Chairman of Global Ag Risk Solutions and a graduate of Texas A&M’s Executive Program for Agricultural Producers, he leverages his diverse skill set to serve as a trusted advisor in the industry. His celebrated presentation, “10 Key Successful Qualities for Business Growth: Lessons Learned on the Farm,” has equipped many professionals with the tools they need to improve their profitability.

With a deep-rooted passion for agriculture, Kristjan Hebert leverages data analytics, human resource management, and cutting-edge technology to drive efficiencies and implement sustainable practices in agriculture. Kristjan constantly seeks to challenge the status quo, resulting in an agile, forward-thinking operation capable of adapting to market trends and environmental variables.

As for awards and recognitions, Kristjan Hebert’s contributions to agriculture and business management haven’t gone unnoticed. In 2020, he was honored with the Top Producer of the Year award, becoming the first Canadian to receive this distinguished accolade. The following year, he was granted the Climate Positive Leader Award from Corteva Agriscience. Kristjan’s reputation as a trailblazer in the field is further solidified by endorsements from industry leaders, such as Danny Klinefelter of TEPAP, who regards him as “one of the most progressive young farmers he knows.”

Kristjan Hebert, who farms 22,000 acres near Moosomin, Sask., said greater collaboration would be ideal. “My message was that the only risk that actually can keep me up at night is policy, and so that they really need to understand that they hold a hammer big enough...
