Mountain View County straddles the thriving Queen Elizabeth II Highway (Hwy 2) and is located directly between the thriving metropolitan region of Calgary to the south and the Central Alberta hub of Red Deer to the north.
Our land base features over one million acres, much of it rich fertile soil and lush grazing land; featuring a diverse agriculture and agri-business sector, underscored by thriving crop and livestock production.
Often referred to as “sure crop country,” the county is home to many producers using diverse and innovative farming techniques and practices. That ongoing focus on diversification and value-added agriculture means more producers are moving into specialty crops, tree and berry farms and food processing.
In addition to agriculture-based businesses, MVC features a number of thriving industries including: oil and gas processing and production, forestry, servicing, tourism, and outdoor adventure opportunities.
