Economy/Mill Rates

The economies of Glenboro and the R.M. of South Cypress are based primarily in Agriculture.

The Rural Municipality of South Cypress consists of a number of mixed farms, including such crops as wheat, barley, oats, flax and canola.  Potatoes are also an important crop grown in the area.  Beef cattle, dairy herds and sheep are also raised in the Municipality.

Due to the dominance of agriculture in the region, the Village of Glenboro offers a number of services to fit the needs of the agriculture community.  Glenboro businesses supply farm machinery and technical services as well professional services for the farmer.

Next to Agriculture, Tourism is the second most important sector of the economy.  Glenboro, ideally situated in naturally beautiful surroundings, is well known as the “Gateway to Spruce Woods Provincial Park”. Kiche Manitou campground and beach and the Manitoba Desert offer tourists a wide variety of options for recreation and fun while visiting the area.  More information on Spruce Woods can be found on their website at:  www.manitobaparks.com
