Algoma Highlands Wild Blueberry Farm and Winery is participating in the Northern Ontario Agri-food Pavilion – 2019 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Algoma Highlands began with selling fresh and frozen blueberries, then selling their in-house developed jam, barbecue sauce, and syrup, all with no artificial colour or preservatives. Today they sell wine produced from wild blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, rhubarb and Siberian blueberries grown on their farm.
Established in 1922, the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair features more than one million square feet of displays and competition facilities, attracting approximately 300,000 visitors each year. The Northern Ontario Agri-food Pavilion is the largest exhibit at the fair, and provides participants from across the North with countless opportunities to establish new business contacts and expand their businesses.
