Manitoba Farmers Care About Community

Specialty Hog
Region Pembina Hills
Farmers Richard & Johnny

Notre Dame de Lourdes is a small community in the Pembina Hills region of Manitoba. Like many small towns, this community is always looking for ways to grow their population and retain their young people. That’s what prompted a group of community-minded farmers, neighbours, and investors to join together and start a hog farm. Twenty-five years later business is thriving, this diverse community is growing and they continue to focus on producing some of the highest-quality lean protein in the world. We were thrilled to meet Rick, Johnny & many others at a 25th anniversary celebration in June. It was evident that this farm has grown, not only because the people who raise the animals care deeply about what they are doing, but because they have made a positive impact on their community.
