The success of our area apple orchards are one the single most important components of our region’s prosperity. The South Georgian Bay region is perfect for apples. The valley on either side of the Beaver River protects the area from most of the severe weather, and the proximity of Georgian Bay moderates the coldest winter weather. One of the pioneers in the development of the local fruit industry was John G. Mitchell. Mitchell lived near Clarksburg and grew apples and plums. In 1932, the company built a large cold storage plant on Hwy #26 east of Thornbury. In 1939, one of the largest canneries in Canada was built across the road. Over the years many packers, families and growers have made small fortunes in wholesaling apples. With greater technology and tree improvements, the industry is poised for success. Come and visit some of our members, who have apples on their minds 24/7, they include Grandma Lambes, Farmer’s Pantry and Fernwood Farms.
