At Grainworks, farming is our passion and family our foundation. Our commitment to healthy foods and a healthy planet started with our great grandparents’ homestead over a century ago. Today we grow Certified Organic, Non-GMO grains and legumes on some of Canada’s most fertile farmland.
We know great food springs from the good seeds we sow in harmony with nature. It all begins with the best seed, carefully tended and harvested. We then mill, process and package delicious, wholesome foods for our family and yours. If it can’t be grown here on the prairies, we have searched far and wide for organic farmers and suppliers in other climate and soil zones that share our passion for great food and a healthy earth.
