Interlake Agri is a multi-generational, family-owned company committed to producing and processing the highest quality of seed and food for farmers and households throughout Canada and around the world. Thanks to our state-of-the-art processing facility, strict process controls, and innovative approach to farming, we’ve become one of Canada’s premier producers and processors of forage and edible seeds, with a focus on niche crops. As an independent company, we value transparency, collaboration, and adaptability — we’re here to work alongside you while offering a fresh outlook.
In 1979, brothers Lee and Paul Gregory did the unexpected: they started their own farm operation. People told them they wouldn’t make it — not because the brothers didn’t have the drive, but because they were first-generation farmers, with no template to follow.
But that’s what’s led to their success. They approached work with an open mind, willing to try new things. That’s still what grounds us at Interlake Agri — we’re here to learn, grow, and offer fresh perspectives.
Lee and Paul grew up in St. Norbert, a suburb of Winnipeg. As teenagers, they found an interest in honey bees. This was just the start of their passion for agriculture, which evolved through their education. After earning degrees in agriculture from the University of Manitoba, the brothers bought land in Fisher Branch, Manitoba’s Interlake region, growing their operation over the years.
In 2004, we diversified our services through the construction of a seed processing facility, and in 2006, we became a certified organic processor. We expanded beyond forage seed processing and introduced a food safety program in 2011. This has allowed us to enter into food-grade processing, specializing in hemp and other edible seeds.
Adam Gregory (Lee’s son), and his wife, Meghan, became the sole owners of Interlake Agri in 2020. Our focus is still rooted in a passion for farming, combined with the desire to stay current, learning and adjusting along the way. Today, we’re a team of 14 full-time employees. At its core, our business revolves around our employees — they’re our main assets. We are able to serve our customers’ needs only because of the team we have in place.
At Interlake Agri, we’re more than just a service provider. We’re farmers, we’re learners, and we’re innovators. We understand what happens beyond our operation, which provides a seamless process at every step of the way.
