Investing in family farming values
120 Years of Agricultural Experience
The Geen family has been actively farming in the Okanagan for 5 generations, successfully operating tree fruit orchards, vineyards, and ground crop plantations.
290 Acres for Outdoor Cultivation
With SpeakEasy’s projected 70,000 KG harvest, it is our goal to soon compete with major players in our industry.
If we look at our current competitor's multiplier of revenue to establish market capitalization, the Company believes even with a modest harvest in the next 12 months SpeakEasy is poised to become a top contender.
