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.”
