Necessity is the mother of invention. We have so much awesome fruit here we are duty bound to share it with our friends. Winter of 2018 has seen us super busy converting our old tissue culture lab to a commercial kitchen. And so the fun begins!
Our store and patio are up and running now! It is just darling!
Health and nutrition is a real interest of ours here and we aim to use only the best and of course healthiest of ingredients. We have bought a juice press and an apple chopper and a dehydrator and…
Our desire is to develop premium products that have been minimally processed to help preserve most of the natural flavor and health benefits. Oh, yes… great flavor too!
Our Cherry Fruit
100 cherries a day is the amount of fruit that most research is conducted upon. So…. You might say, “100 cherries a day keeps the Dr. away. We are so excited about the healing properties of cherries based on our own experience!
We offer cherries in many formats to make it convenient to get your 100 a day.
Cherry juice, Cherry kefir juice, Cherry pulp and kefir drink, dried cherries, cherry fruit roll-ups and frozen, pitted cherries.
Our Trilogy of Good Health
What is the Trilogy? Our trilogy consists of 3 fermented foods which complement each other. They are Kefir, Kombucha and Fermented Vegetables. Gut health is reported to influence so much of our human condition.
Kombucha is a fermented tea using a Scoby which is a Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast. We have made our own but are happy to serve up a Kombucha bar brewed in Red Deer by Kombrewery.
Kefir is fermented milk which sounds yucky but literally – it grows on you.
Fermented Vegetables are from the recent past. Many of us have made sauerkraut ourselves.
Why Honey instead of sugar? Well it certainly is cheaper to add sugar to our products but honey itself adds tons of minerals, flavor and goodness. Just ask a honey grower – they’ll tell you. LOL
We try to use raw fruit as much as possible… and minimally process. Whole fruits, skins and all help get all those yummy, tasty nutrients.
We try to use Kefir instead of milk or yogurt.
