Haskaps are the primary berry that we grow on our farm in Midway, BC. Our product lines include Fresh, Frozen, and Freeze-Dried Berries and Products. In smaller quantities, we also grow Dwarf Sour Cherries which we sell fresh, frozen, and freeze dried and Saskatoons which we sell fresh and frozen.
Haskaps, known as the "fruit of longevity and good vision", are delicious oblong, purple berries with a sweet/tart tangy taste, and are rapidly becoming recognized as a super berry, with significantly more antioxidants than blueberries. Not only are they high in Vitamin C, Potassium, and Fibre, but they have the highest anthocyanin content of all berries, in particular, Cyanidin 3-glucoside(C3G). This is a natural pigment found in a variety of dark colored fruits, plants and vegetables, which considerable evidence shows antioxidant, cardio-protective, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, anticancer and antidiabetic properties.
Our agricultural processes are audited and compliant with CanadaGap, and our berries and products are processed and manufactured in our own CFIA registered facility governed by the CFIA - Safe Food for Canadians Act.
Our berries are grown Pesticide and Herbicide free, and irrigated with potable water. All of our processed berries are washed, have even ripeness and are free of debris.
