Mountain Ridge Organics is located on a 35 acre farm close to the Niagara Escarpment in Grimsby, Ontario. Tim and Ada De Long are the pound new owners of this land as of October 2018. They were intrigued by the fact the land and grapes have been organic and pesticide free for over 20 years. Under mentorship from the kind people at Plan B Organics, the De Longs are proud to have committed to continuing this approach, and continuing to provide us with some of the first certified organic coronation grapes grown in Ontario!
Growing organic grapes is a lot of work. It requires constant grass cutting and weeding around the vines, proper netting, and during the final stages of ripening (which happens on the vine) a really good bird banger! Most importantly, these grapes are loved and cared for by everyone helping through the growing season.
