Family is everything to us here at the Bee & Thistle Winery. We are lucky to all have children, and some of us have grandchildren, that keep us inspired to make positive choices in life. We strive for happiness and health in all what we do.
As the winery grows, it is our hope that all generations will have the opportunity to work along side us. Some have already been to the farm to assist with farming and construction. We look forward to many years of family fun as we continue along on our winemaking journey.
What’s a Family Without a Tractor!
Four generations have enjoyed the 9N tractor that was used on the Bee & Thistle Orchard farm. From oldest to youngest, our father, Ron MacInnis, followed by his son, Peter, the CEO of both the Bee & Thistle Orchard and Bee & Thistle Winery. The third picture is Peter’s son, Ben, followed by Ben’s son Blake.
Collin’s son, Devon, joined us for the 2019 harvest. His main role was to provide transportation services of the Haskap berries from the orchard to the processing station. Once at the processing station, he moved and washed the berries through the system quickly for immediate freezing.
