Producer Driven Research

South East Research Farm

The South East Research Farm Inc. is a producer-directed research organization. It is incorporated as a non-profit and is part of a network of similar organizations in Saskatchewan called Agri-Arm. The South East Research Farm (SERF) is located near Redvers, Saskatchewan. 

The farm is directed and managed by a group of farmer producers from southeast Saskatchewan. Currently the chair of the board is Rob Henderson, a farmer from Redvers. 

Research conducted by the organization is managed by Lana Shaw, PAg, MSc. 


Diversification, sustainability and profitability are the keys to the research and demonstration priorities at SERF. The primary stakeholder of SERF is farmers in our region. In order to serve the research and demonstration needs of diverse kinds of farmers, SERF works with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture, agri-business, universities, commodity groups, rural municipalities and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. We strive to connect innovative ideas originating on farms to the research capacity to test those ideas. We connect research results with producers, bringing the results of breeding and agronomic research to the local area. 

SERF currently conducts trials at four locations in southeast Saskatchewan: Redvers, Halbrite, Moosomin and Langbank.
