100 Years Of Experience
With real farming experience under his belt, Ernest Buckerfield set out west from Moncton in 1890, and after a series of successful ventures, founded Buckerfield’s in 1927.
Thanks to forward-thinking management and a wide selection of offerings, Buckerfield’s continued to expand through the 1930s and soon became the largest feed company in British Columbia.
Buckerfield’s invested in a new process that concentrated Vitamin A in grass for use as an ingredient in animal feed, and by 1947 became the largest producer in the Commonwealth.
During a grave illness, Ernest Buckerfield sold the company to two family-owned firms in Winnipeg. Happily, he recovered and served as president of the jointly owned company until his retirement.
After 14 years of productive partnership with Federal Grain, Pioneer Grain acquired complete ownership of Buckerfield’s in 1965.
Five shareholders purchased Buckerfield’s in 2005, with a vision of establishing a chain of modern retail stores that would bring high-quality products to an even wider audience.
