Thimbleberry Farms

August is blackberry month – not the phone, the tender little blackberries that are now available at Blackberry Bob’s booth. “I got the title of BlackBerry Bob from Anna Olson who was featuring his blackberries during one of her TV cooking shows” says McGough, who has used the title ever since.  Bob and Lucie McGough have been with the Grimsby market for three years and enjoy the interaction they have with their customers.  They have been farming in Beamsville since 1977 on 8 acres, of which 2 acres are devoted to blackberries.  All of the blackberries are grown organically, no pesticides are used.
