Nova Scotian businesswomen receive awards                     

Three Nova Scotian businesswomen were recognized Tuesday night for their outstanding contributions at an awards ceremony at the Discovery Centre in Halifax.

“It was quite a surprise,” said Evelyn Ernst, a co-owner of Lunenburg-based Terra Beata Farms Ltd., in an interview. “A lot of business awards you have to apply for but this was right out of the blue.”

Since founding the cranberry business with her husband David Ernst in 1998, the Ernsts have built a business with annual revenues of about $4 million and employ roughly 30 people.
