Raspberry & blackberry acreage in Nova Scotia is estimated to be about 100 acres with a farm gate value of approximately $1 million. Despite good market and price potential there are few producers in Nova Scotia growing brambles for commercial sale, resulting in essentially no growth of this crop in recent years. There is growth opportunity for brambles in the province with investment in high tunnel production and the introduction of new varieties. The potential is great for this crop if the right individuals step forward.
