Berry Blessing Fruit Farm - Monique Johns

 

We’re the Johns family, living on our fruit farm “Berry Blessings’ located on Walker Road, minutes outside of Thessalon. Here we grow strawberries, raspberries and have just put in close to 900 dwarf cherry trees. We hope that in a few years the cherry trees will be mature enough, that we can start selling their fruit. Our aim is to bring the people of Algoma and surrounding area, food that is grown as naturally as possible and that we eat ourselves, food that is grown without the use of pesticides and herbicides.  Right now we specialize in making salsa, jams, jellies, soap, candles, salves and air fresheners. You will also find our baking including cinnamon rolls, squares and candy. We look forward to seeing you!

Joseph and Mary Sherk

 

My wife and I are a young family just getting started on our own. We are specializing in bedding plants, herbs and vegetables.

During May & June, we sell from our farmgate, the Farmers’ Market or through the Desbarats Produce Centre. Although we really enjoy selling directly to people during the busy harvest time my father Enos Sherk sells many of our vegetables as an extension of his table at the market.

We grow items such as herbs, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, eggplants, parsnips, turnips, pumpkins, etc. It is great having a large extended family who can help us get established.

No Sundays, Please.

Meadowview Alpaca Farm & Fibre Studio

 

At Meadowview Alpaca Farm, we focus on developing a quality breeding program for alpacas, marketing these animals as the alternative livestock of northern Ontario and developing the fibre processing and related value-added products with talented local artisans.

This luxurious hypo-allergenic fibre is second only to cashmere. Several times warmer than sheep’s wool, it is ideally suited to our cold winter climate. It is used to make unique and very soft, comfortable clothing. Imagine high-end garments in 22 natural colours, soft and warm, caressing your body. Functional, yet fashionable, these garments make you feel very special.

People raising alpacas have a variety of options when it comes to their fleece. Several custom mills in Canada welcome this fine fibre and process it into a variety of products, such as yarn, socks, blankets and more. The alpaca farmer then has the option of further transforming fine yarns into mitts, hats, shawls, slippers, duvets, and more.
