Sunrise Co-op

We have an opportunity to define what sustainable farming, good livelihood and thriving community looks like on the Canadian prairies.

Across Canada the question of how we are going to succeed our farmland is emerging. Canada’s farming population is aging, and as they retire, few have a plan to pass on their farm. Meanwhile, young farmers are finding it increasingly difficult to access land to carry on the legacy of the family farm. Rural communities and ways of life are disappearing and our connection to the natural world that supports us is fading.

Land transition

This is a turning point. We are about to witness the largest transfer of prairie land since Treaty negotiations. Will large corporate farms dominate the land with monocultures for export? Or can we secure a future for young farmers supporting families and communities on the land using ecological, ethical practices?

We are bringing together a community that values the latter kind of farming to steward this project into its next phase.

We want you to be a part of it!

Join in

Our goal is to purchase land as a co-operative of visionary investors who see the bigger picture and want a stake in the future of the prairie.

We see the beauty of prairie land and know it needs to be protected. We see a place for holistic farmers on the prairies. We see an opportunity to connect deeply with nature now and for future generations. This is your chance to:

  • Invest in the biodiversity of the prairie
  • Invest in the future of farming
  • Invest in nature for your children and your children’s children.
