Invention of the Month

Inventions of the Month for December

FUNDRAISERS!!!

Duane’s been busy cooking things up, but this time it’s in the office!  It’s been a goal of his for a while now to help out the local communities in a way that gives back to the community.  What a better way to do that than through supporting local teams and nonprofits with their fundraising!

We’ve been busy making sure that all of the pieces fit together and that it comes off spectacular, like everything else at Pearson’s.  We’ve accomplished a lot!  We’ve made a separate website and shopping cart so that orders can be made online as well as offline. We’ve made handy dandy brochures that the kids (or adults) can show people, collect information for orders, and know what goes where on delivery day!  And, we’ve been knocking around ideas to see what would make it even better!  Although we are still taking ideas and we’re open to your input, we’re ready to kick off some Pearson’s Style Fundraising!

If you’re interested in finding out more, you have a team or a community cause that you think might be a good fit, please email Brad@PearsonsBerryFarm.ca and we’ll get you set up!

Alberta Grown Sour Cherry Juice

Pearson’s Berry Farm now has
Alberta Grown Sour Cherry Juice.

And theses Cherries have great health benefits

Rob Sproule defines Alberta Sour Cherries as the superfruit.

Native Americans discovered sour cherries’ medicinal properties centuries ago and ate them to calm upset stomachs and relieve sore throats.  As we dig into the cherry’s chemistry, we’re finding that this is only the beginning of its extraordinary health benefits.

The cherries are brimming with cancer-fighting Phytochemicals and Phenolic acids (antioxidants) as well as Anthocyanins, which reduce inflammation and inhibit tumour growth and development.  They’ve been proven to help relieve chronic pain, lower blood pressure, and improve blood flow.

On top of that, sour cherries are one of the few naturally occurring foods to contain the sleep-aiding hormone melatonin, which enhances mood while promoting a relaxing sleep.

Inventions of the Month for September

The trees are burstings at the seams with CHERRIES!!!  I’d love to say, “Oh sweet, delicious cherries!” but these are even better than that!
“Why?”, you ask.  “How can that be???”  Well, these cherries are sour cherries.  And, my friend, they make for delicious pies, lemonade, muffins and so much more.  What we’re going to do with them, however, is a complete and total secret!  Insert sinister laugh….

“Why?”, again you ask.  We’ll mostly because we don’t know.  We know that the possibilities are virtually endless, however, our supply is not.  Therefore we need to figure out how to use them to satisfy you in the best and most fulfilling way.  HEY!   Maybe I should toss this over to the contest department?!?

In the meanwhile…if you like sour cherries and you have an idea of what you want us to do with them, give us a shout!  email contests @ Pearsons berry farm .ca or comment or message us on the Facebook page!  We’d love to hear from you!

Inventions of the Month for June

For tickles and giggles, I figured I would test the formula 1 kitchen, and this is why I was sequestered to computers and cars.  I’m much better qualified to eat the goodies than I am to cook the goodies.  Sad, yes. But, true.

This month I decided that I was going to make my own concoction of summer goodness.  I was going to mix citrus with a hint of mint.  That’s right!  The grapefruit, orange, lemon and mint lemonade!  Think of it as breakfast meets mojitos!  And, in theory, it’s a beautiful thing.  In reality, it was kind of like hangover meets hair of the dog.

So….if you’re a brave soul and you want to make your own breakfast mojito, I dare say, you go right ahead.  I will see you at lunch!

Enjoy!

And, maybe better luck next month!
