Al Boyko

Business Diversification

Al Boyko and Hélène Tremblay-Boyko have been farming on the Boyko family farm since 1989. In the beginning, it was strictly conventional grain. Then, in 2000, they were certified organic. They grow primarily wheat and oats, but also add rye, flax and plow-down legumes in the mix. In 2007, they purchased a section of pasture land and began to raise certified organic, grass-fed beef. This created a more sustainable cycle for improving the land. Now, they have added hay land to the crop rotation and cut and bale it to feed the cattle. Al has spent some time on various committees and boards of directors, advancing the cause of organic and regenerative farming in the province. As time progressed and their children scattered to the far reaches of the continent, Al & Hélène began looking for the next generations of stewards on the land. They continue learning and sharing their adventures in farming with new farmers. They look forward to finding a young family to transition onto the farm and stepping back from active farming in order to dedicate more time to mentoring.
