At One Degree Organic Foods, we believe in the connection between healthy soil, crops, and people. We are passionate about clean, nourishing foods and providing 100% transparency in the food that you eat.
Vern Friesen believes in clean, organic ingredients and values their connection with consumers just as much as we do. We are proud to work with them because these shared values are the foundation for the best gluten-free, organic sprouted oats.
We cherish our relationship with Vern, who nurture their organic crops with the same care we put into every product One Degree makes.
But producing the best gluten-free, organic sprouted oats is not just about how they are farmed or the care we take in preparing and packaging them for you and your family. Mother Nature plays a role too.
Canada’s prairie provinces are famous for producing some of the best oats in the world. And Vern’s farm in La Crete, northern Alberta, is especially well-suited to oat farming.
But the favorable climate and long daylight hours are only part of what makes northern Alberta special. The area is also home to a strong network of organic oat farmers who support one another. Organic farming is more than an occupation there—it is a way of life. And the strength of their community comes out in the quality of the oats they grow.
We take our commitment to transparency seriously. Telling you where your food comes from and who is behind it is part of who we are. As our founder, Stan Smith says, “One Degree isn’t a product with a story. One Degree is a story with a product.”
That is why we’re so proud to introduce Vern Friesen to you—and why we hope to tell you more about them soon.
