When a plot of land came up for sale across the street from their home in 1998, BMO Celebrating Women honouree Evelyn Ernst and her husband, David, left their careers behind to start Terra Beata Farms. From its beginnings as a 12-acre cranberry bog to processing fruit from approximately 12 other farms in addition to the original plot, Terra Beata is now a global brand, with its preserves, juices, and berries on store shelves in Canada and China.
