“Hi, I really need to talk to a top official!  My neighbor has planted the new genetically modified (GM) alfalfa crop next door.  I’ve been saving alfalfa seed for the past 30 years now, a non-GM variety, and I’m afraid to go on.”

Farmer Profile: The Veggie Patch, Alberta

Posted by Lisa Lundgard on April 22, 2014

Name: Lisa Lundgard
Age: 25
Farm Name: The Veggie Patch
Location: Grimshaw, AB
What do you produce?  I produce about 35 different varieties of vegetables.  I am on my families mixed farm and we raise and sell certified organic grass-fed beef and lamb, as well as pastured pork. 
Number of years farming: 4
Farming background: I grew up on my families mixed farm, which means chores - chores - and more chores!  I was the 12 year old kid who in speech competitions made my opening line, “Have you ever seen chicken poo fly?  Well I have!”, I think that sums it up a bit.
