The current dry spell isn’t harming Renfrew County's popular agri-tourism industry. At Hugli's Blueberry Ranch, later varieties of high-bush blueberries are doing better than expected. A new water irrigation system was put in place to pump from the pond 24/7, meaning there are plenty of plump and sweet blueberries to pick or buy freshly picked from Hugli’s Country Gift Store!

Next time you're travelling through the Wilno area make sure you visit the Garden Gallery for locally made art, jewellery and of course, the owner's own line of SigridNaturals. To make the product she uses her own herbs and those picked on foraging trips in the surrounding wilderness!
