Speaker Bio

Green Beach Farm & Food

Zack Koscielny is a 5th generation farmer from Strathclair, Manitoba, who owns and operates Green Beach Farm & Food alongside his family. Green Beach Farm & Food is a regeneratively managed farm that focuses on grass fed beef, naturally raised pork, pastured poultry, and certified organic grains. Over the years, Zack has been implementing the 6 principles of soil health, which has made his farm more resilient to the effects of climate change.

Zack started planting cover crops in 2017, using a variety of mixes, including: full season with barley and pea; full season with rye and pea; full season mix with relay seeding, fall seeding, and under sowing green feed crops (oats, hairy vetch, Italian rye grass). Zack terminates cover crops with grazing cattle, mowing, or roller crimping and recognizes the benefits of cover crops such as extended grazing, weed control, biodiversity, and soil health.


Glen Lowry

The Lowry’s are a fourth generation family farm located North of Darlingford, Manitoba that consists of 320 acres of rolling topography with bush and sensitive wetlands as well as arable farmland.
Glen was always intrigued by nature and how things all worked together. After he took over the family farm in 1984, it became evident that he enjoyed the cattle more than the grain farming. As a result, all the farm acres were committed to grasslands for grazing the cattle. Currently, the Lowry’s have a commercial 80 cow/calf pair operation, calving on grass from May to June.
In trying to stay in tune with nature, the Lowry’s took a holistic farm management course and implemented those practices. They use an intensive rotational grazing system, often moving the cattle daily. The cows are never confined and are typically on grass throughout the entire year.
Their winter feeding consists of bale grazing or depending on availability, hay feeding cows on the paddocks.
The Lowry’s have seen great improvement in their grasslands with the natural fertilizer. This in turn results in increased production and increased grass pounds per acre – healthier cattle – healthier soil.
