Our Farming Practices

we remain strong to our roots

Over the past 100+ years on our farm the equipment and technology has evolved greatly, however, the land remains the same. Over this long period of time we have learned the best practices for sustainable farming for our land through trials of several methods of farming. We are proud to say that the soil health is better than ever.

our best practices for sustainable farming

No-till Farming

This practice slows the breakdown of plant material both on the soil surface and in the root zone, slowing the release of carbon back into the atmosphere. The carbon taken from the atmosphere is stored in the soil. Additionally, by continuous cropping, the plants take carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis and store it in plant structures. In dry conditions such as those in southwest Saskatchewan, no-till farming helps to conserve land moisture and minimize land erosion.

Crop Rotation

As a part of no-till farming we alternate crops year to year by planting legumes on off years to
regenerate the soil naturally. Legumes have the ability to put nitrogen and organic matter back into the soil and provide a fertile root zone for the next year’s crop. The legumes grown are high in protein and used to feed people all over the world.
