Company Overview:

With over 1600 acres of farmland, Algoma Orchards is currently Canada’s largest grower and shows no signs of slowing down. Every year, we invest in our farms by planting 150 acres of high-density farmland. Drip irrigation is used by our farmers. This implies that water is dripped directly into the soil so that the tree can absorb it completely. As a result, significantly less water is wasted by evaporating before the trees have had an opportunity to absorb it. We have also used Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to protect our crops for over 30 years. IPM entails actively monitoring crops for pests and diseases and treating trees only when absolutely necessary. Our farming methods are tested and true, and our farmers like what they do.
