Robyn re­tired in 2015 after farm­ing for 50 years on a third-gen­er­a­tion farm started by his grand­fa­ther in 1894. He and his wife Reba still live in the farm­house built by Robyn’s par­ents in 1950—the year he was born. He con­sid­ers him­self a jack of all trades—a re­quire­ment in the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try. Some of his skills were learned from his fa­ther, oth­ers were self­taught. He keeps ac­tive look­ing after their large farm­yard and cabin re­treat by the Val­ley River on ad­join­ing prop­erty, where most of his wood and ma­sonry crafts­man­ship can be seen. This is­sue’s Crafty Cana­di­ans on page 56 fea­tures Robyn’s im­pres­sive hand­i­work.
