About the Fruit Wagon:

Doug and Leslie Balsillie have enjoyed establishing our orchards, berry plantations, market gardens and our retail Fruit Wagon along the shores of Lake Erie. It’s been a work in progress since 1984, and we have enjoyed having our four daughters growing up on the farm and helping out over the years. Our main harvest is fresh apples for commercial packers and for the Toronto Food Terminal. We harvest daily for our retail business on our roadside wagon from May until November. We also fill our van every Saturday from June until Thanksgiving for the Downtown Windsor Farmers Market on Pelissier Street in Windsor.
