Vendor Profile: Belluz Farms

Local Strawberries at the MarketNestled in the beautiful Slate River Valley, Belluz Farms is one of the only full-time fruit and vegetable family farms in our area. We grow “Pick-Your-Own” and “Fresh Picked for you” fruit and veggies starting with strawberries in late June and finishing off with pumpkins & squash in the fall. Support for our farm also supports the hundreds of local students we’ve employed over the years.

How We Grow
We are proud to be our family’s third generation responsible for the stewardship of our farm land. Our land is our passion, and we’re continually inspired to improve the sustainable farm practices that have kept us a trusted grower of fruits and vegetables for so long. We believe in growing amazingly fresh and delicious produce following time honoured organic practices together with some modern techniques of integrated management to protect the soil, water and air that we depend upon.

Fresh Corn at the MarketAt the Thunder Bay Country Market
Our parents, Claire and Don, were founding members of the TBCM with a firm belief in the importance of community run organization that could bring fresh local produce to as many local people as possible. We carry on that tradition by bringing our Fresh Picked produce, greenhouse plants and Claire’s Preserves to Market on Saturdays.

At the Farm
Our fruit & veggies have a reputation for selling out early at the Thunder Bay Country Market! But don’t worry – take a short country drive out to the Farm! Our Farm Market Store is open almost every day during the summer and weekends during the fall. Experience the joy of “Pick Your Own” and enjoy our farm activities and Harvest Café.
