Jordan and Jennifer Lindgren, along with their four children, own and operate Lindgren Farms at Norquay, Saskatchewan. Lindgren Farms is a 14000 acre grain, oilseed and pulse farm.
We work diligently at maximizing production for their crops, while minimizing cost of production. We do this by using field scale trials to determine what products, genetics and practices work on their farm. By combining these methods, with the latest advancements in technology, we continue to meet and exceed our production goals.
We also own and operate Lindgren Seeds, which provides seed cleaning services and a selection of pedigree seed.
We place importance on educating ourselves, but also in sharing this information with fellow farmers. We partner with local agriculture distributors to host the “Field of Dreams” tour that is held annually on our farm. It is an opportunity to share trial results from previous years and showcase the current trials that are focused on new genetics, applications and variable fertilizer rates.
It is also important to us to educate the next generation on the importance of farming and teaching them where their food comes from. We host a “Food Farm” in the spring and fall on our farm. This is an interactive, hands on tour focusing on farm safety, how plants are grown, harvested and then making the connection on how it gets to their plate.
Family and agriculture are the most important aspects of our lives. All 4 kids are active and participate in all farm activities. It is important that they are hands on and learn all aspects of the farm...…..from the field to the kitchen.
We take great pride in being able to continue their century family farm and are passionate at maintaining the family aspect in the everchanging corporate farm environment.
We love the challenges and simplicities of farming. The smell of the freshly turned soil, the hum of combines in the fall, watching our kids excitement to drive a tractor for the first time are feelings that never get old.
We continue to challenge and expand our knowledge of ways to improve our farming practices. We are dedicated to ensure that we will maintain a family atmosphere on our farm, and continue educating and sharing our passion for agriculture with the next generation. It's humbling doing what we love every day.
Our kids are 5th generation and we are blessed to continue to work alongside our parents. We will continue to improve and build our farm to make it sustainable for the next generation.
We both had great role models and teachers when it came to farming and life. Jordan's Dad and Uncle were partners on the farm and he couldn't wait to work alongside them.
After we were married we started a succession plan with my Aunt and Uncle as well as Mom and Dad. If we were going to purchase what they had built in 35 years we wanted to have a plan and prepare. In 2014 we were ready and were able to purchase Aunt and Uncles’ share in the farm and in 2017 from Mom and Dad. They all still play an active role in the farm at seeding and harvest, they are always there to bounce ideas off of and we continue to learn from their experience.
The daily operations happen because we have an amazing team who work together to endure that our farm is running efficiently. We are fortunate to have a team who cares for our land and farm the way we do!!
