Know your farmer
Prairie farmers respect their land and the long-term benefits that can be had with sustainable farm practices. These practices include crop rotation, conservation till and precision ag. Incorporating these practices allows farmers to reduce inputs. They also provide regenerative benefits to the soil microbiome, as well as to biodiversity in the wider environment.
Pivotal to Avena’s success are strong, long-term partnerships with our growers. These relationships are fostered through an annual Grower School, joint crop inspections, Customer and Farmer Appreciation Days, Field to Market Canada Innovation Projects and regular ongoing contact.
Farmers work with Avena’s grain buyers and millers to ensure documented traceability of pulses and oats right back to the farm.
