Looking for Saskatchewan-grown vegetables year-round? Siblings Chris and Rachel Buhler built this greenhouse on their family’s century farm to produce tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, lettuce and herbs. In 2007, they won the grand prize in the BioVenture Challenge for their “innovative business plan” to “enhance Saskatchewan’s bioeconomy”. They choose varieties based on taste and colour.

Growing methods

We grow 365 days a year, near Osler, Saskatchewan. We heat with wood diverted from landfill which we grind up and burn in a boiler. Our half-acre greenhouse needs a lot of heat and it remains one of our biggest challenges.
