The Turin community, located north east of the City of Lethbridge, got its name from a stallion imported from Turin, Italy.
Most businesses in the Turin area are privately owned and run from local homes and farms. Farming consists of specialized crops on irrigated lands including sugar beets, corn and potatoes.
There is dry land wheat farming and irrigated forage crops, ranching, and chicken, cattle, dairy and pork operations.
Some farmers have diversified into raising llamas and alpacas, boar meat goats and the odd buffalo.
It is a lush farming area with numerous agricultural opportunities.
