History

Algoma Highlands Wild Blueberry Farm and Winery is a 640 acre family farm located 3 km from downtown Wawa.  It's fields are transected by Hwy 17 and uses an old tree nursery to process and ship it's wild blue berries and associated products.  This is a unique geological site, consisting of 100% sand being old Lake Superior beachfront from times gone by,  ideal for the encouragement of wild blueberry plants.    Scenic High Falls, a major tourist attraction in the Wawa area, can only be accessed via our farm road.  Moose, bears, wolves, cranes, eagles and all the other animals of Northern Ontario are common sights on the fields during the summer season.

In 2011, we sold both fresh and frozen berries, and in 2013 we entered the value-added market selling jam, barbeque sauce, and syrup.  All products are 100% natural, with no artificial colour or preservatives added.  Algoma Highlands plans to expand upon these markets and add a small winery for the future as well as honey products that is a pollination by-product.

We will be conducting tours and have a roadside stall in coming seasons.  We deliver as well as have local retail clients who will carry our preservatives and fresh and frozen products.   Our new addition of a large freezer unit will allow us to provide all our products year round to our customers.
