Taber gets more than its fair share of sunshine. On any given day, the wide blue sky dominates the expansive prairie landscape. The westerly breezes that travel over the Rocky Mountains bring Chinook winds that can suddenly warm even the chilliest winter day.
Despite its miles and miles of rolling farmland, Taber isn't all just dry prairie. We get just enough moisture to green the Oldman River valley and to enrich the fertile soil that drives our argiculture and food processing industries.
