Vulcan County's Glen and Marsha Tharle took home the BMO Farm Family Award from the Calgary Stampede for their area this year.
Marsha says it's a nice bit of recognition.
"I think it's a real honour to be recognized for all the work that you do. For us, it just meant that people noticed what we're doing in the community and the volunteer time we give."
She says Glen's the leader of the 4-H Beef, he's also been the President of the Fire Association for 17 years.
Marsha says she's been busy too as a Youth church leader, and the President of the local skate club among others.
But even with the great day Glen Tharle was still thinking about his farm and how this hot weather's been affecting it.
"We could use the rain as well. We're hanging in. But if we don't get some rain in the next couple of weeks it's really going to start to show. But for right now we're not too bad."
The Tharle family has been farming in the region since Glen's Grandfather came over from the Isle of Wight in 1902.
