Beirnes’ Family Farm is a hobby grain farm growing canola, flax, and wheat. In the fall, small square bales of wheat straw and flax are made. Flax bales are used for dog houses and insulating septic fields. Wheat bales are used for bedding for horses, chickens, etc. And straw bale gardening.
Mike and Carolyn Reimer started “Living Well Farm” as a way to teach their five children about work and responsibility. After serving as missionaries in South America for 20 years, the Reimers bought a previously flooded farm in Grande Pointe, built a house together and started rehabilitating the old sheds and granaries. Now they keep very busy caring for their 2000+ spruce landscaping trees, free range laying hens, and small herd of grass fed beef cattle which are moved to fresh pasture every day. Their oldest son, Devan, has ventured into a pumpkin and squash growing business and recently started producing meat chickens on pasture. He just shipped his first batch of 50 to be processed and has a growing customer list.
Gradually we are seeing the farm that was abandoned after the 1997 flood revitalized. The soils are improving and this little farm on the very edge of the Winnipeg city limits is productive once again!

Nestled on the eastern edge of the Brandon Hills, Howpark Farms is owned and operated by 4th generation farmers Ian and Linda Grossart and family. Our grass-fed, organically certified cattle are raised in our pastures and the entire herds’ diet includes only grasses, forage crops and legumes grown entirely on our farm. Our own breeding program and complete control over their diet considers every aspect of what makes ethically-raised, certified grass-fed organic beef that is both nutrient rich and distinctly flavourful, while also considering the environmental impact on the earth.
We also grow a variety of organic grains as part of our crop rotation and raise pasture chickens to assist us in our regenerative farming practices. As our climate changes so must our approach to food production. We take pride in helping with ongoing research in the fields of food production and regenerative agriculture.
Howpark Farms has been in the family since 1879 and was started by Ian’s Great Grandfather William Bertram. William homesteaded this location as it closely resembled his original family farm in Scotland, the namesake of this farm.
The farm has always been home to both livestock and grain, given the topography and native prairie that it contains. The most obvious distinguishing feature at Howpark is the western edge of our property which rises steeply into the natural wilderness setting of the Brandon Hills. This area is popular with nature-lovers and recreational enthusiasts who love the picturesque features of the terrain.
We believe that regenerative agriculture is the way of the future and continue to use progressive farming practices that will ensure the farm will be viable both finacially and ecologically for generations to come.
At Natural Collective CSA, we’ve decided to dedicate our time and resources to ensuring that people in Winnipeg and the surrounding area have a local option for all of their vegetable needs. We run a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm funded by yearly purchased shares, giving you access to weekly boxes of our produce during the growing season.
Located on a 5 acre plot southeast of Winnipeg, Manitoba, just outside of Niverville and on Treaty 1 Territory, our goal is to grow and harvest the best food possible and bring it to your door. Using no pesticides or herbicides, we want to learn from nature what it’s been doing from the start, and bring you quality vegetables and herbs from origins you can trust.
With enough support we hope to further diversify and begin to build a stand-alone, fully functioning diet that you can count on to feed your family. If that sounds like something you could get behind, give us a shout – Join the Collective.
