Vision

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. From pet food and accessories to fencing and supplies, Buckerfield's original country stores continue to serve their local communities.

1919
Creation

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.
