From seeds to harvest Swan Valley agriculture industry is the heartbeat of the province.
The first pioneers arrived in the Swan Valley through the Duck Mountains in 1897 and quickly developed the farming potential of the area. Farming continues to play a major role in the Valley, with almost fifty percent of the surrounding area under cultivation, most of which is seeded to cereal grain, oilseeds, and other specialty crops. Wheat, rye, barley, oats, flax, beans, lentils, and canola are the primary grain crops. There are also many mixed farms producing cattle, hogs, sheep, buffalo, goat, horses and farm raised wild animals.
