Sunni Knoll Farms is located in picturesque Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia and is home to the van de Riet family. The van de Riets have been Farmers Dairy shareholders for the past 30 years. The love of agriculture runs deep in this family. Just ask John van de Riet’s daughter, Lindsay. When she’s not busy finishing off her Bachelor of Science (Major in Agricultural Business) at Nova Scotia Agricultural College, she’s whipping up tasty concoctions in the kitchen, to share with family and farm hands.
