Founded in 1998 by David and Evelyn Ernst, Terra Beata grew first from a patch of undeveloped peat bog sold at a mortgage foreclosure to a 12 acre cranberry farm on Heckmans Island, near Lunenburg Nova Scotia. From there, we learned to clean, freeze, process and market cranberries. We now still operate the original farm, plus a 50 acre farm in Aylesford, and a 12 acre farm in Tremont, NS.

In 2018 we opened a facility in Sackville NB at the center of Atlantic Canada where we receive, clean and freeze fresh cranberries from our farms plus about 12 other farms in Atlantic Canada, for a total of over 5 million pounds of fruit per year. Frozen berries packed in Sackville travel to industrial customers around the world.

Our original facility on Heckmans Island produces juice, dried fruit and cooked products sold under the Terra Beata brand at grocery stores across Canada as well as serving industrial and private label customers.
