The Brightspot Story

The name "Brightspot" contains many facets of our company ethos. We strive to lead by example; a North Star in the climate mitigation night sky. And as much as we are excited about tomorrow’s possibilities, we also have a great respect for our history:

Brightspot School was a small, one-room school on the Saskatchewan prairies. Several members of the extended Schroeder family attended the school. In 1983, Lorne and Theresa Schroeder adopted the name for their family dairy farm, Brightspot Holsteins. Within this history, there’s a passion for our deep prairie roots and the special places we will always cherish.

At the core, our name demonstrates our company’s foundation in education, connection to the land, zeal for the environment, and hope for our families and friends. Together we can build a strong community, a healthier world, and a brighter future.
