David and Lynn Freeman have it over Jack Frost. They know how to capture value by freezing Mother Nature's gifts. The Freemans have built a state-of-the-art, large-scale, good management practice (GMP) certified processing plant to freeze dry botanicals such as garlic, blueberries, herbs and other plant material. The ability to produce GMP-grade freeze-dried fruits and vegetables can potentially enable other Ontario farmers to partner with feed and pharmaceutical companies to produce nutraceutical supplements and whole foods. Freeman Farms' first project is to manufacture garlic powder with allicin.
