"You couldn’t have picked a better guy."
- Gilbert Marleau, Pioneer Sales Associate
Located 35 kilometers west of Montréal, Marc-André Pilon lives quietly nestled off the road in Saint-Polycarpe, Quebec with his wife and daughter. There, he operates Ferme Pilon Inc., where he farms 950 acres of corn and soybeans. Aside from farming, Marc-André spends his time raising horses, many of which he shows at events with his 12-year-old daughter, Magalie.
Although he is one of the younger farmers in the area, Marc-André is described by his peers as a strong, humble man and is highly regarded in the area. Friend, and Pioneer sales representative, Gilbert Marleau believes there is no one more deserving than Marc-André to win the 2016 DuPont Pioneer Seed for Life grand prize.
