Welcome to the Schraefel Farm
We are located 10 km SE of Kerrobert, a town of 1200. We are 200 km West of our nearest city, Saskatoon. We are far from any type of industrial pollutants and so enjoy a quiet, clear mostly farming community. Adam, Stephen, and Derek, the 4th generation on the farm, are the main operators of the farm with some help from Clem and Chandra and a few neighbors and friends! Thanks, everyone!
We produce organic dry land crops including cereal grains such as wheat, barley and oats, oilseeds and legumes like flax, peas, and lentils on 5200 acres of Wright, Allcock, and Schraefel land. We offer sales direct to consumers, distributor, and brokers as well as bulk sales. Please call us directly. The land consists of glacial till with low rolling hills and sloughs with small bluffs of trees in the low spots. It is home for many deer, rabbits, antelope, coyotes, porcupines, and foxes. Over the past several years we are seeing more moose make this their home. We are in the flyway of the Canada goose and many kinds of ducks and other foul. The farm operation is the primary business producing bulk grains in a dry climate which reduces disease and insect problems. Yields are less but the quality is usually very high.

I’ve just returned from a trip to Vancouver for a work-related training course.

We had (almost) six hours of training. Yep, six
I stopped at the local cemetery the other day, just ’cause it was a quiet, peaceful day, and because I was in an introspective mood, I guess. There are many stops to make there. My mom’s parents, four of her siblings, two of her brothers-in-law, Clem’s parents, his grandparents, his great-grandfather, various aunts and uncles,
The mornings have been so damp and dewy this summer. Sometimes there is a mist in the distance and hovering over the dugout. Feels a little like Scotland! One morning after the sun chased away the fog, I looked out the window and saw a fairy garden – so out I went with the camera!
