From a mountain ranch in Chase, BC to an aquaponics facility on the cutting edge of sustainable cannabis cultivation, the story of two gentlemen and the cannabis business they built is as unforgettable as their cannabis is legendary.
Rudi Schiebel and Laine Keyes met playing hockey in the farm leagues of Canada’s West Coast. After the two suffered career ending injuries on the ice, two partnered up to build Turtle Valley Bison Company, a Bison Ranch that focused on raising protein responsibly. During this time, they had a realization that raising animals was more about creating a sustainable environment for them to thrive in than anything else
When Canada became the first G7 country to legalize cannabis, they began to dream about bringing their philosophy of sustainable protein and regenerative agriculture together with the sprit of British Columbia, local salmon and B.C. Bud.
So they did.
Rudi and Laine started Habitat in 2017, creating a model that is equally environmental as it is economical.
