Our farm in Alberta performs the crucial role of growing corn, wheat and hay silage (forage) for our cattle. Utilizing well-managed, professional and progressive practices, VRP Farms works to take care of our land. We always work with the highest regard for environmental stewardship and concern for the waterways within the bounds of our operations and surrounding areas.

How We Do Farming
Innovations such as precision agriculture, variable-rate technology and real-time weather information gathering aid in the efficient use of resources to grow more crop with fewer inputs.
We participate in the Alberta Environmental Farm Plan Program. The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) is a voluntary, whole farm, self-assessment tool that helps producers identify their environmental risks and develop plans to mitigate identified risks. Read our commitment to the environment.
Leading-edge technologies such as GPS enable VRP to manage logistics of its large machinery fleet and irrigation equipment. This informs better decision-making on how to best direct resources. Additional equipment monitoring information from sprayers, tractor and seeders is combined with land information and crop health information.
Our shop located at the Home Lot near Iron Springs is the hub of all farm activity. Our mechanics, welders and shop crew work diligently throughout the year to maintain our machinery, equipment, feed mills and buildings. We have trained and qualified staff that are able to perform the majority of repairs and maintenance in house, reducing the need to outsource the work.
