Borderland Agriculture is owned and operated by Brooks and Jen White along with our two young children. Found in the extreme southwestern corner of Manitoba, we are a 5th generation family farm with a location at Lyleton and Pierson. We are fortunate to still have the 4th generation (Ron and Wendy) active on the home farm. The name of the farm represents our location with the land bordering both Saskatchewan and North Dakota. The farm is always busy with the diversity of enterprises and at times of the year involves a team of 8+ people all working towards the vision of our operation, "Regenerate". 

 

As part of our vision statement, the main focus on the farm is integrating bison production into a diverse poly-culture. Some of the crops grown include winter wheat, rye, oats, corn, soybeans, faba beans, peas, canola, hemp, lentils and sunflowers. Two thirds of the annual production in 2017 included the use of inter-crops, companion crops and cover-crops and in 2019 this has increased to around ninety percent and continues to increase. As these cropping practices have been adopted, there is improvement to the biology of the soil and a reduction to the need for inputs. We offer custom seed blends for your unique needs and can help with your cover crop/intercropping design. 

600 bison are integrated into the farm to help to build healthy soils and add value to the operation. Our bison spend their life grazing all year round as nature intended. We offer quality breeding animals and grass fed, inspected, top quality bison meat. The bison industry is very strong and the future looks very promising as North America moves forward with plans to expand production.

By using regenerative agriculture, everything works as an ever changing ecosystem. We are care takers of not only the land, plants, and bison, but also the great Canadian wildlife, and those who live and work on the farm, or as Jen likes to call them, our "FARMILY." 

 

Visitors are welcomed to the farm at anytime and are invited to discover our world throughout our website and social media.
