50 Years
of Fresh

1966 - 2016

Fresh From Sun-Soaked Southern Alberta

Ten Southern Alberta families with a shared passion for growing the freshest produce founded the RedHat Co-operative in 1966. Since then, we've grown from a handful of greenhouses to over 150 acres on the sun-soaked Alberta prairies. Our passion still drives our relentless innovation to grow the freshest produce.
