Okay so aside from being excited because everything in the greenhouse is now in full bloom, we have 45 acres of blooming saskatoons, today I get the word from Barbados that the chocolate bars are ready and they will be shipped next Tuesday.
Greg and I had an opportunity to tour a boutique chocolate factory while we were vacationing in Barbados this past February. The owner is very passionate about how his chocolate is made, and keeps it very simple. The very best single origin cacao beans from Grenada and Ecuador, Bajun cane sugar and cocoa butter. 3 ingredients that's it, no preservatives, and no wax fillers. Can you say yummy. Oh I can't forget the 4th ingredient in his espresso bar which of course if coffee beans, this is my favourite! Greg and I are very fortune to have the opportunity to travel and look for good quality food and we are excited for you to try out our latest find. These will be available at Brix N Berries farm, the Leduc Farmers Market and also Lake Dell (Pigeon Lake) Farmers Market later this season. So all you chocolate lovers, you have to check these out!
The saskatoon berries should be ready to pick by mid July, watch the website for opening dates and when the berries are ready. We sure hope to see you sometime this summer whether you are looking for fresh veggies, strawberries, saskatoons or of course chocolate!!!!!!
Remember our goal and promise is to produce the best food products possible without the use herbicides, pesticides or fungicides.
See you soon Greg & Laurie
