Ep 10. Paula Willinsky, Owner of Ballantrae Farms shares the great story behind her organic harvesting

Paula has been gowing organic heritage garlic from around the world for just over 12 years. With a green thumb, and a passion for all things nature, she has been introducing Canadians to the wonderful world of flavours through her farm of organic produce, heritage garlic and abundance of flowers.

Paula learned the beautiful concept of growing all things natural when she was a young girl as she watched her mother grow one of the most beautiful rose gardens in Canada. Paula carried on her mothers green thumb by adopting a love for mother earth and experiencing a connection of planting and growing produce. With six grown kids and making sure not a single weed takes over her gardens, Paula leads a very popular farm and expresses her passion of growing and selling garlic.
