FARM BIO

FortWhyte Farms works with under served youth in Winnipeg using sustainable agriculture to acquire employment training and build leadership skills while instilling values of individual and community self-reliance.

We raise organic vegetables, culinary herbs and bedding plants on 1.5 acres and in a passive solar, cold-climate greenhouse.

Our heritage breed livestock are raised humanely on pasture and available farm gate and at our on-site Farmer's Market.

FortWhyte Farms is a social enterprise, a business whose purpose goes beyond a purely financial "bottom line" to see profit in the far reaching social and economic benefits that extend into the lives of individuals, families and communities.
