Responding to the needs of the farming community, CTV Saskatoon has been providing FARMGATE for 27 years. FARMGATE is Saskatchewan's only farm magazine program and is the most-watched agricultural program in Saskatchewan. Bob Simpson has been hosting the show since 1999; he grew up on a farm in Southern Alberta, and graduated in broadcasting from Mount Royal College in Calgary never straying far from his farming roots. Each week, FARMGATE covers topics from animal husbandry to soil maintenance and food preservation to insect control and all the issues in-between affecting farmers and their families.
