EDWIN KIFFIAK MEMORIAL AWARD

DON WELSH (POSTHUMOUSLY)
AND SLEEPY HOLLOW SEEDS LTD.

Sleepy Hollow Seeds is a third generation pedigree seed operation located east of Milk River, where they grow pedigree spring, durum and winter wheat, barley, peas and lentils. In 1950, before it was officially Sleepy Hollow Seeds, Ken Welsh was convinced by some friends to start raising seed. His first pedigreed seed was purchased and planted that spring, beginning our journey in the seed industry. Ken gained a permanent partner when Don came back from college, and the two of them raised seed together until Ken retired. Sleepy Hollow Seeds was officially incorporated in 1994, and became the third generation to continue the seed business in 2009.

Don Welsh was born on July 2, 1952, the youngest of his six siblings. He helped his father Ken with farming and raising pedigreed seed throughout high school, and after going to Olds College he returned home to farm full time. Don raised seed throughout his farming career, and always maintained a lot of pride in being a seed grower. Don was always a very active community member in the Milk River area, where he helped coach many basketball and baseball teams, and held positions on local boards including the Milk River East Water Coop and the Sage Creek Grazing Association. When he had free time, he loved to travel, watch the Yankees, and took every opportunity to spend time with his family.
