Where We Farm
Our Western Canadian cooperative farmer-owners have been stewards of the land for generations; in fact, a number of them have been farming the same land for over a century. They are irrigated and dry land farmers and ranchers, many of whom were practicing organic agricultural techniques before organic certification was even available.
Our 60+ farmer-owners work daily to manage their slices of Earth with care, rebuilding the soil through crop rotations, preventing topsoil erosion with cover crops, protecting our shared waterways and air by never using toxic herbicides and pesticides, honoring a farmer's right to independence by never using genetically engineered seeds, and respecting those who support what they do by putting the highest quality grains, legumes and oilseeds on our tables. They have proved that nature has the solutions to revitalize the soil, water and air to re-create healthy and resilient ecosystems.
