The Berry Belt

When you think of Grand Falls-Windsor do luscious, nutritious berries come to mind? Maybe not, but there's a whole crop of farmers working hard to change that. They want central Newfoundland to become known as the berry belt of this province.

You'll meet a blueberry farmer, two aspiring cranberry farmers and a farmer who's growing a powerful berry you've likely never even heard of - sea buckthorn. You'll discover the health benefits of these tiny berries and gain an appreciation for the patience it takes to produce them.
