Concord Mountain Farms

 Jane and Don Kouri have been operating Concord Mountain Farm at RR#2 Beamsville for the past 22 years growing juice grapes, apples, plums, pears, and peaches.  In the summer of 2007 it was announced by the bottler of Welch’s grape juice that the St. Catharines plant would be closing and no longer purchasing grapes from local growers.  Much has been published about the health benefits of grape juice as an anti-oxidant.  In anticipation of health conscious seniors, as well as parents not wanting to give sugary drinks to their children, they began to process their own grapes for juice to be sold at the Grimsby Farmers’ Market.  Their pure, pasteurized grape juice contains no added sweetener and has become a popular local product.  Recently they have added cherry, cherry-grape and cranberry to their line of juices.    Located along the side of the Niagara escarpment, Don and Jane provide homegrown fruit and juices at the Grimsby Farmers’ Market.  Email dkouri@vaxxine.com.
