Ben and Ellen Martens, together with two of their daughters, Clarice and Jill are Martens Charolais & Seed.
Ben Martens is a life-long farmer and learner. He began his farming career with his family as a teenager. As a young farmer, Ben studied diesel mechanics in the winters. Ben’s favorite things about the farm are harvest time, moving cattle out to pasture and meeting new people from across the Agriculture industry. Ben currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Manitoba Pulse and Soybean Growers.
Ellen Martens (BSW, MA) shares her time between the farm and her counselling practice. Ellen is an avid reader, writer and lover of the outdoors. She can often be found out for a hike or xcountry ski.
Jill Martens (Ag Dip) returned to the farm in 2020 after graduating from the University of Manitoba.
At Martens Charolais and Seed, we believe that even with 40+ years of farming experience, there is always more to learn. We are committed to growing the highest quality products for our customers while investing in the health of our community and environment.
