The Hermus family moved from The Netherlands to Canada in 2005 to the growing city of Brooks, Alberta. Marc, Corina and the three kids (Anke, Frank and Bas) started farming cereal crops with the hope to expand their operation to other possibilities. Marc has always had a dream of having a livestock operation that is sustainable for the future and will provide a new challenge. He initially started exploring the idea of a goat dairy many years ago but wanted to wait until the perfect opportunity came along. Fairwinds farm was that perfect opportunity.
The Hermus’s are looking forward to learning everything we can from the Oudshoorns and working closely with the ever-growing customer base.
During this ownership transition time, The Hermus family will be learning the production side first alongside Ben and Anita Oudshoorn. Then, they will also be learning the milk production with the goats. The operation will be moving from Fort Macleod Alberta to Brooks Alberta within the next year.
