My name is Ken Burton and I was raised on a mixed farm between the communities of Kipling and Broadview. I have spent the last four decades operating the family farm just a few miles south of the Pipestone Valley. While I recently stepped back from active involvement with the farm, having sold much of it, I live in Kipling and continue to own some land and a small herd of cattle.
I am the proud father of two sons and grandfather to their five wonderful children.
During my years on the farm I operated a custom farming business and did work for many area farmers. I was also able to find time to attend the University of Regina where I received a Bachelor of Arts in History. My work history includes several years on a drilling rig operating in both Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
I have been actively involved in my community over the years serving on the executive of the Kipling Lions Club, Kipling Curling Club and Landsdowne Memorial Cemetery. I have been elected to the board of the local Conservation and Development Area three times.
I continue to actively curl and enjoy outdoor activities in both summer and winter. I have a very keen interest in the preservation and protection of the Pipestone Valley and the ecosystems it supports.
