Haskap is the most exciting new berry in the orchard, and it’s uniquely Canadian! By now you’ve missed the berry picking season, but there are other options perfect for your autumn table.
Broken Tine Orchard in Rio Grande (near Hythe) is a fourth generation farm now branching into the haskap orchard business. They have a delicious menu of “berried treasure” delights including haskap wine, juice and ice cream. Frozen haskap will last all winter and tastes great in jams and sauces or stirred into yogurt.
This is an up and coming Peace Country business, so be sure to keep up with their news. Fine Broken Tine Orchard on Facebook, or on their website, where you can also read much more about haskap.
