Solving Agriculture’s Puzzles – Respect the Past, Grow the Future

Mario Toneguzzi |

Kristjan Hebert has combined his love of finance with his passion for farming. Born and raised on a family farm in Saskatchewan, Kristjan obtained his CPA with Myers Norris Penny and then returned to the Moosomin area to farm with his family. Today, he is the managing partner of Hebert Grain Ventures (HGV), a large grain and oilseed operation in Saskatchewan. At HGV he enjoys solving agriculture’s puzzles in order to fulfill HGV’s purpose of “Respect the past, Grow the future.”

Widely thought of as one of the brightest young minds in agriculture today, Kristjan received the Top Producer Award in 2020 and was recently honored as a Climate Positive leader in agriculture.

He is also the co-founder of Maverick Ag – providing custom-designed lending, accounting and insurance solutions to producers.

Kristjan enjoys coaching hockey and traveling with his wife Theresa, son Bentley and daughter Ivy.
