Poplar Valley Organic Farms is located in north eastern central Saskatchewan on the 53rd parallel.  The soil is fertile, the air is clean, and there is an abundance of sunshine all year round.

The farmers living in our community are environmentally conscious; a healthy lifestyle is of great importance to us.  We continue to experiment with new ideas in organic farming methods that work to maintain the health and integrity of the land.  This area is very productive in legume crops (alfalfa, lentils, peas and clovers) which produce many soil nutrients that help to fertilize the soil naturally.  This provides us with an endless opportunity for high quality products without chemicals.

We are involved in organic farming because we are committed to the simple philosophy that if the land is to sustain us, we must sustain it.

Profile & Market

We have been growing organic crops on our family farm since 1981.  As more and more of the local farmers began switching to organic farming, the need for a specialized marketing outlet became necessary.

In 1989, we created Poplar Valley Organic Farms Inc., our grain marketing company.  Our reputation for deliverying and assuring a reliable supply of consistently high quality products is well known among our customers.

Our marketing and distribution system includes the Americas and Europe.

A large range of products are available through our company.

One of our most popular items is flax.  It is widely used for culinary and medicinal purposes.  Flax is very rich in both essential fatty acids (linoleic LA and linolenic LNA).  Research shows that the further north flax is grown the higher it is in linolenic fatty acids.

Our Philosophy

In the agriculture industry, the high use of chemicals has created environmental problems, such as harmful effects to the land and to surface and run-off water.  This deterioration in the health of the land has created a loss of faith in farming practices.  Many people believe that the quality of food is diminished and has had a negative impact on their health because of residual chemicals in the food they eat.  Therefore, the choice of sustainable and healthy farming methods is our aim and makes good sense.  Our customers appreciate the resulting high quality, organic products.
