Production On The Farm
The land that we farm is very precious and valuable to us. That is why we work hard to preserve our land base. The crops that we grow are grown on 2500 acres of some of the best farm land in Nova Scotia. We work with other growers in the Annapolis Valley to implement an effective crop rotation program that benefits the entire farming community. Our fields are woven in and amongst the small communities that make up the Annapolis Valley.
Our Country Magic potatoes are grown in Nictaux, NS. Nictaux is an ideal place to grow potatoes because of its high organic content and loose soil. We also grow potatoes in other locations throughout the Annapolis Valley.
Our Country Magic strawberries are grown in Kingston, NS. We grow our strawberries in Kingston because it often is a few degrees warmer in Kingston than the rest of the Annapolis Valley. The strawberries like the warmer temperature which allows them to be in season longer.
Our Country Magic lettuce and other cooking vegetables are grown outside of Berwick, NS. Our Berwick location produces some of the best lettuce and vegetables in Nova Scotia. The reason for this is because the crops are grown in peat soil.
A large part of our farm operations are our grain crops that we grow. The grain crops are an essential part of the crop rotation program that we employ.
We grow our Country Magic blackberries, grape tomatoes, beans and raspberries in our haygrove tunnel greenhouses in Gibson Woods, NS. The tunnels provide increased heat units so the crops can have an extended season.
Our base of operations is located in Sheffield Mills, NS. This where we have our head office, soft fruit packing and storage and vegetable packing and storage facilities.
Our Country Magic blueberries are grown in Medford and Sheffield Mills, NS. The soil that our highbush blueberries are planted in is slightly acidic which is perfect for blueberries. Our Medford fields also have a cool ocean breeze from the Minas Basin that helps develop the sugars within the blueberries.
Our Country Magic onions are grown in Avonport and other locations throughout the Annapolis Valley. The onions that we grow are flavourful and this is because of where we grow them.
We are dedicated to producing quality Country Magic products that will be part of our customer’s healthy lifestyle.
Our primary crops include highbush blueberries, onions, potatoes, strawberries, lettuce and other greens—we are constantly introducing new items that will liven up your plate!
