Why Organic?

Shimmering wheat and barley, hearty oats and rye—the Canadian prairies are renowned for their brilliant bounty.

With rapidly increasing demand for organic grains, there has never been a better time to transition. Seed by seed, grain by grain, Pivot is here to help you make the change.

Transition to Organics

Make a natural progression.

The decision is yours. You don’t have to convert your whole farm at once. Many producers start with one or two fields, and create a plan to transition their whole farm over time. Or on the other hand, you may choose to make a faster transition and take advantage of higher profit margins. Whatever you choose, Pivot has the knowledge base and resources to help your farm become more profitable.
