About Belluz Farms
“As the 3rd generation responsible for the stewardship of our land, we’re continually maintaining and improving our sustainable practices,” says Kevin when describing the commitment that the Belluz family faithfully fulfills on the farm that his grandparents founded in 1946. Today, 200 acres are under field production and the remaining 100 acres are dedicated to wetland, bush and replanted forest. Kevin’s plant biology studies at Guelph have inspired and enabled ecologically sound practices, both on the land and in their greenhouse.“For me it’s all about the food,” jokes Jodi, whose teaching skills and cooking expertise are evident in the popular canning and preserving classes offered at Belluz Farms.
