135 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.
Together with his wife, Andrea, Jeff bought a small parcel of land and began Brule Creek Farms in 2008. They planted 17 acres of wheat and began construction of the flour mill. By mid-November, construction was complete and the crop was harvested. They began milling their wheat flour and selling it at the Thunder Bay Country Market.
They now farm 135 acres of wheat, rye, buckwheat and canola and make a variety of different types of flour and baking mixes. They market to a variety of different stores, restaurants, bakeries and farmers markets across Northwestern Ontario.
