Mike & Chantal Reimer Bio:
 
Michael and Chantal Reimer, along with Mike’s sister Angela Penner and her husband Len, are partners in Oaklee Farms, near Blumenort, Manitoba.  Oaklee Farms is a 3rd generation mixed farm.
 
They have recently discontinued their swine farrow to finish operations and are now contract growing approximately 2000 finisher hogs per cycle for Maple Leaf Farms.  They also grow close to 50,000 kgs of chicken per 7 week cycle and grow over 300,000 kgs of turkey every year.  They make all of their own livestock feed, except Maple Leaf will now supply the hog feed for their own hogs.
 
In their spare time, Oaklee farms close to 1800 acres of land and they manage crop spraying for a handful of their closest neighbors.  Between midnight and 6 a.m. Mike and his brother-in-law Len Penner, are husbands and fathers.  Len is a district advisor for Manitoba Pork.  Mike is Vice Chair of Manitoba Turkey Producers and the delegate to Turkey Farmers of Canada.
 
Oaklee Farms has been a valued client of Lakeview Insurance for more than 25 years.  In the 16 years that I have been at Lakeview the farm has transitioned.  Approximately 10 years ago, Mike and Len purchased their uncle’s half of the farm and in recent years, they bought out Mike’s parents.  Both Mike and Len have children that want to farm with them some day.  They are a very close group and both Mike and Len’s families live on the farm.
 
Looking forward to seeing you all attend!
 
Reminder: Manitoba CAFA Conference is on February 9, 2023 in Winnipeg,
