Food Facts

Did you know that:

Apple Cider has absolutely no preservatives, added sugar or water. Apple Cider is a natural product made from tree-ripened apples alone.

The UV-treatment that we use, to make the juice safe for drinking, uses no heat and doesn't affect the flavour.

You can freeze Apple Cider? While we recommend no longer than 2 weeks in the fridge, in the freezer it lasts up to an entire year.

Archeologists have found evidence that humans have been enjoying apples since at least 6500 B.C.

There are apple varieties with the aftertaste of pear, citrus, cinnamon, clove, coconut, strawberry, grape and pineapple.

The old saying 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away' stems from an old English adage, ' to eat an apple before going to bed will make the doctor beg his bread'.

The McIntosh apple is the national apple of Canada, yet the only apple indigineous to North America is the crabapple.

It takes approximately 36 apples to make one gallon (3.78 litres) of Apple Cider.

Pumpkins are rich in vital anti-oxidants and vitamins and very low in calories? They are excellent sources of protein, minerals, vitamins (primarily A, C and E), antioxidants and dietary fibre.

While most of us think of pumpkins as orange, they also come in green, yellow, white, grey and even red.

Green bell peppers have 2x as much Vitamin C as oranges and red, yellow and orange peppers have 4x as much.

The variety of the pepper plant and the stage of the ripeness determine the flavor and color of each pepper, ranging from green being the most bitter to red being the sweetest.

 

Having witnessed the downturn in the North American food culture, we were proud to be one of the neighbourhood farms in Abbotsford, BC that could offer fresh, local fare again. We don’t go to the farmer’s markets because the culture is trendy, we go because we love connecting with the people. It’s the buzz of conversation and your smiling faces that keep us coming back. Cheers!
