Lorne has been on the family farm for his entire life. Together with his wife they helped Lorne's family operate a mixed farm of grain and beef until 1981 when he and Theresa started a dairy which they operated for 17 years. The dairy was dispersed in 1998 and the farm was transitioned to organic. They presently manage 2000 acres of cultivated land which is in a forage grain rotation. This is complimented with 500 acres of pasture and 200 head of beef cattle.
