Our Farms

The Good Seed Hemp Company started farming in 2006 with an ancient tractor, some family land, and a big dream.

A dream of connecting to the land, wandering through fields of hemp, and bringing healthy healing food to the people. Over time the dream has grown to include raising children whose feet are always dirty, studying the many diverse uses of hemp, and experimenting with different growing strategies. But one thing remains the same since the very beginning, we grow hemp because we believe in farming, we believe in good food, and we believe in hemp’s ability to heal.

Jumping Lake Acres, Saskatchewan

Our main family farm, Jumping Lake Acres, is located in Saskatchewan, containing 90 acres of arable land and 110 acres of wildlife habitat in the form of forest, grassland, streams and marshes.

At Jumping Lake, we have farmed industrial hemp since 2006, in rotation with oats, spelt, red fife wheat, field peas, garlic, and cover crops such as alfalfa, clover and vetch.

Southern Vancouver Island, BC

In 2015, with two young children having joined the Good Seed Family, we began experimenting with hemp farming on ten acres in the Cowichan Valley on the West Coast of British Columbia.

Coastal grain farming is very different from prairie farming, and we are excited about this new adventure where we are implementing permaculture design and other progressive organic farming techniques. We sell most of our West Coast hemp products at local farmers markets. We also have hemp fiber available for sale.

Other Farms

To meet the growing needs of our customers, the Good Seed also purchases hemp seeds from other family farms in the Canadian prairies.

We work with farmers who steward the land, protect topsoil, rotate crops, use biological weed controls, and grow healthy hemp plants. We buy the whole seeds and have them pressed for oil and protein powder, de-hulled for hemp hearts, and toasted for delicious crunchy snacks.
