Our Core Focus
Passion to efficiently produce proteins.
We farm a combination of owned and rented land as well as several customised contract farming agreements. With operations across North America, stretching from Arizona (USA) to the northern areas of Saskatchewan & Manitoba.
The key to integrating all this is that all land is farmed as if it is our own! This includes maintaining or improving soil nutrient levels, optimizing weed control strategies, and reducing weed seed levels returned to the seed bank.
We can also leverage our scale of operation to maximize grain marketing returns while minimizing crop input costs.
We utilise cloud-based systems capable of geo-referenced tracking of all aspects of growing our crops. From seeds used, inputs applied, crop harvesting, grain transportation and storage as well as crop marketing.
This information can be provided to customers and business partners and enables complete transparency.
We operate some of the most up-to-date and efficient equipment available in the market today, and if it isn’t available, we have the capacity to build or modify equipment to our exact requirements.
Some of the technology utilised includes variable rate, sectional control, computer-controlled seed packing pressure and optical blockage sensors on our air drills. Our combines are all computer controlled both for the machine setting and forward speed in order to maximize the quantity and quality of crop harvested while minimizing losses and cracked grains.
Just as important is the logistics required to keep everything running. To do this we operate a fleet of our own semi-trucks as well as service trucks stocked with tools and common parts.
Once the crop is harvested it must be stored. Here we have several options including bagging in the field as well as fixed storage facilities at each of our locations.
