    Durum Wheat

    For the second year in a row, CANTERRA SEEDS partnered with Bushels for Broken Arrow, a program created to help raise money for the Broken Arrow Youth Ranch. The ranch provides a safe home for children whose parents are overwhelmed with personal issues such as addictions, abuse and family illness. Bushels for Broken Arrow allows farmers/supporters to put in a field of wheat and the money from the harvested grain of that crop is donated to the ranch. In 2017, we had great success with AAC Cameron VB wheat when we were launching the variety. CANTERRA SEEDS, along with in-kind support from some of our shareholders, were able to raise $86,000 for the Broken Arrow Youth Ranch.
