Fun at the Farm

History, Bakers, News,

and Silly Fun

Fun Farmer’s Faces

Say that five times real fast and you’ll be smiling as much as these little farmers in the making.

The farm will full of squeals and giggles as all the kids ate pie, played in the park, ate ice cream and played some more.  They had a great time making money reselling their ice cream cones and buying them back again.  We’re not sure who ended up with it in the end, but there were smiles all around so clearly, it was a win/win negotiation.

There’s still plenty of sunshine left to go and visit the farmer’s markets around the province!  And, fortunately, there are farmer’s markets open all winter where you’ll be able to get your Pearson’s Berry Farm pies and goodies!

Invention of the Month

Sometimes the Experiments Work! And, We Share Them With You!

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.

Bloopers

‘CAUSE LIFE’S NOT ALWAYS
A BOWL OF BERRIES

Bloopers – September

This month’s blooper comes to you from the “We just had to take a picture of Duane looking like he does” file.

Somehow Debbie always looks fabulous, Duane tries to imitate her, and it just comes out all…Duane.  There’s just no other way to say it.

On the plus side, the flowers were gorgeous this year, the farm had bumper crops and a ton of food made for a ton of happy visitors and shoppers alike.  Getting all dressed up like this to sort berries, make delicious food or just trying to look cool and fit in with the bikers is some of the
