SUNSHINE FARM in Prince Edward Island was created in 2000 by Ina Proeber.
Ina grew up in a family where preserving the bounty of the season was a cherished ritual during the summer and fall. Opening a jar of jam or pickles when a winter storm was howling outside is a memory that inspired her to continue the tradition.
She started with making salsa due to a bumper crop of tomatoes. In 2003, she won 3rd prize at the Royal Winter Fair for her medium salsa.
Over the last 15 years, her business grew to a line of over 140 different products made without artificial additives or preservatives.
