Van Raay Paskal Farms crops a total of 55,000 acres between our farm in Alberta and our farm in Saskatchewan. In Alberta, VRP seeds approx. 21,000 irrigated acres near Iron Springs, in close proximity to all of our feedlots.

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.
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 in Alberta
Our farm in Alberta performs the crucial role of growing forage for our cattle. We are currently seeding 21,000 acres consisting of rye, soft wheat, barley, triticale, and corn.
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.
How We Do Farming in Saskatchewan
Our farm in Saskatchewan is a commercial grain operation that operates independently from VRP. We are currently seeding 34,000 acres consisting of canola, wheat, barley, and red lentils. These crops are sold at the local elevators and are eventually exported around the world.
