Welcome to the Schraefel Farm
The Schraefel Farm is located 10 km SE of Kerrobert, a cool little 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 dryland crops including cereal grains such as wheat, barley and oats, oilseeds and legumes like flax, peas, and lentils on 5200 acres of Wright, Allcock, Lighthouse and Schraefel land. We offer sales direct to consumers, distributors, 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 birds. 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.
