Hot_spot_elevators_002Yellow Grass, SK is a pretty little town located just 28 kms NW of Weyburn on Highway 39. It began as a bustling central hub in the late 1800s and was incorporated as a town in 1906. Agriculture has been the mainstay of the local economy.

Over the years it has had many small businesses and a population topping out at about 500 people; currently numbering about 483. Rural Saskatchewan was in decline for some time but is now booming and Yellow Grass is participating in the boom.

Much residential construction took place during 2011 and 2012, hopefully with more to come. The town has installed a new water treatment plant that supplies our residents with  good quality soft water. We have a new subdivision open now and we are happy to have had the first house moved in. It enjoys a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school, a branch of the Weyburn Credit Union,  two churches, a very active rink and an excellent Family restaurant.

Yellow Grass is served by the Sun Country Health Region, with hospital access at the Weyburn General Hospital and emergency ambulance service by calling 911.

Many people here are long term residents but many are also new to town and we are happy to welcome them.
