What does 'Farm to Fork' mean?

Farm to Fork is a movement focused on connecting consumers with all stages of food production - from growing, to harvesting to processing to consuming. At Three Farmers, we strive to provide this personal connection between our farmers and our customers by implementing traceability. Rather than just making a claim on the label, we want to show our customers where their food came from and what the process was in creating it. We want everyone to take a front row seat in the creation of their food and be able to reach us with the questions that they have about its production. That’s why we have made it possible to simply enter your product code and find out exactly who made your Three Farmers product and where.

Camelina Oil Three Farmers Traceability Saskatchewan Map

Camelina Oil

Camelina is an ancient oilseed that originated in parts of Northern Europe and Central Asia. The seed was grown and pressed for use as a culinary oil throughout Europe up until the mid-1940s. It is a non-GMO oilseed with many nutritional benefits due to the high levels of Omega-3 and Vitamin E inherent in the oil, as well as the balance of Omega -3, -6 and -9.

Our Camelina fields are grown in Southeastern Saskatchewan.

1980 we began continuous cropping. This has enriched the soil profile of our farmland. We see additional benefits to doing this that include:

  • Less salinity in the soil
  • Better water holding capacity
  • More organic matter
  • Less erosion of the soil

We use direct seeding. The soil is much healthier and alive with these methods.

The camelina seeds are hauled to Saskatoon, SK where they are pressed into oil, settled or filtered of some of the natural sediments and then bottled into our Three Farmers tinted glass bottles to retain the quality and integrity of the nutrients, colour and flavour.
