Beattie Farm in Alliston hosted the Simcoe County Federation of Agriculture Summer BBQ

It was my pleasure to have a tour of the John Beattie Potato Farm and #beattiesdistillers in Alliston at the annual Simcoe County Federation of Agriculture Summer Barbecue. The Beattie family has been and continues to be a leader in the big business of farming here in Simcoe-Grey.

The Simcoe County Federation of Agriculture is one of 51 county and regional federations supported by OFA across the province. Simcoe County Federation of Agriculture represents the voice of agriculture in the local community and advocates on behalf of farm families in Simcoe County on local agricultural issues.

“Beattie’s was born out of five generations of farm-crafted experience. It all started with our great-grandfather Roland Beattie, who came over from Scotland in 1876. From the very beginning, he instilled the core values the family & business live by to this day: Work hard, love what you do and give back to your community.”

Beattie’s Potato Vodka is described as follows: “A subtle bouquet of buttery notes fills the glass, followed by hints of white pepper, almond and caramel. It all culminates in a smooth finish, ideal for simply enjoying over ice or in a martini with a hint of vermouth.”
Voted ‘World’s Best Vodka’ at the World’s Spirit Competition.
