Lower Shannon Farms Achieves Over 15% Yield Increase for Tomatoes and Cucumbers in Saksketchewan
Lower Shannon Farms is a 100-year old farm near Lloydminster, Saskatchewan. The farm is currently run by John and Robin Acton, who are fifth generation farmers. Traditionally, the farm has focused on growing grain and raising livestock. In 2012, anticipating a demand for fresh, locally grown produce, John decided to build a greenhouse. Nearly six years later, they consistently sell out of lettuce at the farmer’s market.
