From a small mixed farm to pioneering regenerative agriculture, Arlie LaRoche’s journey has been about growth, sustainability, and a passion for food.

A native of eastern SK, her roots are deeply intertwined with the farming culture.

After exploring the world and immersing herself in environmental consulting, she was drawn back to the soil. Alongside her husband, Brett, they transformed a personal passion project into the thriving Farm One Forty.

It was a workshop with renowned sustainable agriculture expert, Joel Salatin, that catapulted Farm One Forty from a hobby farm to a recognized local business. Farm One Forty isn’t just a farm; it’s an experience. Nestled near Saskatoon, it boasts pasture-raised pork, grass-fed beef and lamb, the sweetest honey, and vibrant yields of seasonal vegetables and grains.

For Arlie, Farm One Forty is more than a business; it’s a movement. With agritourism becoming a significant pillar of her business, immersive experiences and exquisite on-farm dinners offer visitors a taste of the land’s bounty. She’s on a mission to bridge the divide between bustling cities and tranquil farms, aiming to reintroduce people to the origins of their food.

Embracing the global trend of farm-to-table dining and the renaissance of local produce, 2019 marked a new chapter with the launch of Odla Restaurant & Market on Broadway in Saskatoon. A gastronomic celebration of the province’s rich produce, Odla sources its ingredients predominantly from Farm One Forty and other local farms, epitomizing Arlie’s vision: simple, delicious, and deeply rooted in the land.
