Peace - Overview

This distinct landscape features high, prairie-like flatlands. While most of the Peace is sparsely populated, direct rail routes provide access to both North American markets and to the Prince Rupert international seaport.

Growing Conditions

With a vast territory ranging from mountainous to flat, temperatures vary widely across the Peace. Long summer days provide ample sunlight. Soil can easily be eroded by water and be acidic in some areas, requiring modern tillage and crop rotation techniques.

Crops, Livestock & Food Processing

Major commodities include beef, canola, forage seed, and grains such as wheat and barley. Farms located along river valleys also produce field crops that grow well in shorter seasons, like root vegetables, peas, cabbage and sweet corn. Other significant sectors in the Peace include honey, horses, hogs, dairy, and bison and other game.
