225 acres of wheat, rye and canola.
This is our story.
Jeff grew up on a dairy farm just down the road from Brule Creek Farms where he began to develop an interest for agriculture. After studying at Lakehead University, he became involved in a research project exploring the viability of a grain mill as part of a sustainable local food system.
Jeff bought a small parcel of land and began Brule Creek Farms in 2008. He planted 17 acres of wheat and began construction of the flour mill. By mid-November, construction was complete and the crop was harvested. He began milling his wheat flour and selling it at the Thunder Bay Country Market.
He now farms 225 acres of wheat, rye, canola and cover crops and make a variety of different types of flour, baking mixes and cold-pressed canola oil. He markets to a variety of different stores, restaurants, bakeries and farmers markets across Northwestern Ontario.
