Multi-generational, family owned and operated, Wintermar Farms houses certified seed stock operations and a whole grain cereal crops operation that cleans and conditions the whole grains for human consumption markets.  Its products are marketed locally and internationally. A new facility built in 2006 improved efficiencies, and the plant is working toward Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points certification.  Improved farm practices have created employment for family and community members and encouraged the next generation to farm. It has benefitted the broader community with the farm donating $5,000 to the local recreational facility and a portion of their crop to the Canadian Food Grains Bank.
