Dave Reibling, Oak Manor Farms

2002 : Organic Agriculture Award

Dave Riebling is a farmer and grain processor from Tavistock, Ontario, Canada, and a founding member of OTA. He developed his own processing facility in order to sell his organic products after he had converted the family farm to organic methods. His farming and processing activities led him to begin trading in grain and pulses from Saskatchewan and other prairie province organic farmers. His enterprise never became ‘big business,’ but remains a strong, diversified, viable direct farm enterprise, and a model for small farms.
