Denis and Vonnie live in the Dysart area near where Denis grew up on a mixed farm. They have three grown children and one granddaughter.
Since purchasing the farm in 1974 Denis has managed it organically. It wasn’t until the mid 1980’s when we first certified the land as organic. After working in the retail industry for 23 years he decided to further his education and took Inspector training through the distance education course at the Assiniboine College. Since 2000 he has been an Independent Organic Inspector inspecting throughout Canada for a number of Certifying bodies.
During his years involved in the organic industry, Denis has served on various organic boards including Saskatchewan Organic Directorate, OCIA, and is currently on the OCIA Research and Education Board.
Denis always looks forward to seeing every one at the Organic Connections Conference.
