Rod was raised on the family farm near Qu’Appelle Saskatchewan. Before returning to farming tried his hand at being a mobile Disc Jockey (playing music at dances and other social gatherings), A ramp attendant at the Regina airport, eventually managing the Petro Canada Fueling station, and then a career with Redhead Equipment. During the time at Redhead, Rod was given the opportunity to start a farm for the owner of the company. Redland Farms, located in the Fort Qu’Appelle area, was formed. Over the next 15 years Redland was grown to 12,000 acres from the initial 1440 started with. Started with Monette Farms in Feb, 2017 as the Operation Manager Regina farm. Enjoys traveling to warmer climates in the winter and spending time with family. Proud to call Saskatchewan home.
