I've never heard of Haskap Berries. What are they?

Open tab

The Haskap Berry (also known as Blue Honeysuckle) grows wild in every province except BC, but the cultivated varieties have only recently begun producing fruit in Nova Scotia. The berry itself is deep purple blue in colour and has a taste with the tang of raspberry and the richness of blueberry.

We have limited the number of guests who can enter the retail space. There is hand sanitizer available at each entrance. Our staff are masked at all times and we provide free masks for any visitors who do not have one with them. The sales counter is protected with windows (literally our old storm windows!) Our sampling service is restricted to seated customers only at the moment. We are doing regular cleaning of high touch surfaces. Plus we are situated in a building that is 120 years old, with lots of big open doors and windows, sitting beside the Atlantic Ocean, which means that we have perfect and constant air circulation!
