Kejay Investments Inc is owned by Kevin and Jason Stallaert. They farm approximately 3000 acres of fresh vegetables. The farm employs approximately 22 full time employees as well as 8 seasonal employees.
Kejay Investments was the recipient of the Agriculture Innovator of the year in 2010 for their “Over Winter” carrot project.
The Over Winter project started as a 25 acre test plot of mature carrot tops with black plastic mulch and large bales of straw, creating a natural in ground cooler for carrots. This patent pending project yielded more than 30 tonnes of carrots. This technique is now helping bring local grown carrots to market 52 weeks a year.
