Frances Wilson

Organic Producer


Frances Wilson has been farming organically for that past 20 years, with a mixed cattle and grain system. Her farm is located near Kenton, Manitoba on a Newdale Clay Loam soil. Over this time both excess moisture/ flooding and dry conditions have tested the resilience of her organic production system. Practices currently implemented or previously tested on her farm include perennial hay or pasture in rotation with annual crops, strategic tillage, relay cropping, intercropping, surface water retention, and conservation of natural features.
