Monette Farms LTD will be launching their first ever non-profit pilot project, Mission Hope.
We are very excited to publicly announce that we have partnered up with six amazing like-minded charitable organizations that not only share the same goals as us but also the drive and selflessness for giving back to others.
Mission Hope will be that hope of extra funding to those that need it most and where it will be utilized best to benefit the brave and less fortunate.
Monette Farms carefully identified organizations that serves the local community, nationally and internationally. As our North American footprint grows, we believe these organizations serving the local and abroad communities aligns with the core values we implement on our farm and the success thereof.
Mission Hope will be donating the profits of 320 acres cropland to these beneficiaries so they can continue the amazing work they do for others. The 320 acres consists of 160 acres Canola crop and 160 acres Durum crop. The 160 acres of Canola is located at our Swift Current location and the 160 acres of Durum crop is located at our Regina location.

This is where the farm started and where we are still based today. It is in a semi-arid region with corresponding low disease pressure and the ability to produce some of the highest quality durum and pulses in Canada.
The farm has a mostly dark brown soil type varying from high clay content in the north to sandier in the south with an average of 285mm of rainfall per year.
This is also the location where we grow our seed production in conjunction with NexGen Seeds.
We also farm on the Regina plains just south of the city. The soil here is very high clay content and is some of the most productive in Saskatchewan. With an average of 310mm of rain per year it has the ability to reliably produce good crops year after year.
We farm just north of Prince Albert. This farm has our highest average rainfall at 327mm per year and in combination with the high organic matter black and dark grey soils has the potential to produce excellent crops of malt barley and canola.
Our newest addition is a certified organic farm, based west of Phoenix in Arizona. It is also home to Saguaro Seeds. This farm is in the high desert with Approx. 8 inches of rainfall per year making irrigation a necessity.
We utilize sub-surface drip irrigation to minimise evaporation and maximise water use efficiency. With its warm year round temperature, irrigation and proximity to a large urban center, this is an ideal location to produce high quality vegetables, pulses and cereal crops.
Our farm in Montana is south west of Havre in the heart of the Golden Triangle. Like Swift Current, this is a low rain fall region with an average of 11.2 inches per year, resulting in the area having low disease pressure, and the ability to grow exceptionally high-quality crops. One difference here is the milder winter allows for the production of winter or fall seeded crops.
The main crops we grow here are winter wheat and pulses particularly large green lentils and garbanzo beans.
