For over 100 years the Wolfe family has produced superior, sustainable grains and pulses—lentils, chickpeas, peas, and beans— on their Saskatchewan farm. That means five generations of commitment to sustainable agriculture and smart farming practices. While the technology and process has changed, our mission has stayed the same: grow better food for more people.
Northerly fuses hands-on, professional farming experience with education in and understanding of advanced agricultural technology or ag tech. We’re staying at the forefront of smart farming to address issues around sustainability, affordability, and accessibility.
Connecting farm and people.
If you’re like us, you’re tired of anonymous farmers and environmentally-reckless farming. Northerly is committed to connecting farms and people. Our growing practice meets the highest standards of social and environmental accountability, while putting crops directly into buyers’ hands.
Advancements in technology and ag tech, rather than separating us from the natural world, are key to helping us save it. By using AI, robotics, automation, and IoT technology, we’re able to use the land more efficiently, with less pollution, less waste, and higher quality, higher yield crops. Sustainable agriculture is about feeding the future while growing strong communities.
To keep our soil healthy, Northerly practices crop rotation, growing pulse crops like peas, lentils, and garbanzo beans. Because of their nitrogen-fixing properties these pulses improve soil biodiversity, creating a balanced, sustainable food ecosystem.
With shorter food chains your product passes through fewer hands before reaching your kitchen or facility. This means you get fresh, fairly-priced grains thanks to our higher agricultural efficiency.
From the field to its final destination, we maintain control over nearly every piece of our food chain. We clean, package, and deliver so you’re guaranteed a high quality product, every time.
Our fully-integrated software does it all: from daily operations like moving dirt, to customer service and chat support. Plant-to-harvest technology helps Northerly run efficiently, reduce waste, and better utilize resources so you get a stronger and tastier end product.
Food waste occurs at nearly every step of the supply chain, wasting water and energy while over-impacting landfills. To combat this, we recycle our fibrous waste and product bags to reduce our environmental impact and combat climate change.
Accessibility, affordability, sustainability… we understand these are just a few of the problems our customers encounter. That’s why we’re working hard to build strong relationships between farmers and consumers.
From our harvest’s carbon footprint to the price you’re paying per pound, we believe transparency is key. We make sure you’ve got this information at your fingertips, so you’re never kept in the dark.
