Haskapa is the creation of a group of like-minded entrepreneurs who have been growing Haskap berries in Nova Scotia since 2011. Operated by our sister company, LaHave Natural Farms, we are passionate about the natural taste of our berries. By concentrating on biodynamic farming, and especially soil health, we believe there is a direct impact on the quality, taste and healthof the berries we grow.
In 2012, we developed and created our first Juice which flew off the shelves in and around Lunenburg County and went on to win Best New Juice at the 2013 World Juice Awards… (yes, there really is such a thing). The haskapa brand was born.
Since then, we’ve been developing and expanding our haskapa range for food-lovers seeking bold new flavours made with authentic ingredients, including Jam, Chutney, Relish, Cranberry Sauce, Infused Maple Syrup, Dried Berries, as well as Teas, Spirits, Fruitcake and handmade Chocolates. We’ve even created a skincare range using this incredibly versatile berry.
In 2015, we opened the world’s first haskapa store in our home town, Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. It was an instant hit with locals and tourists who have been lucky enough to trial instore new delights such as haskapa Ice-cream, haskapa Mulled Wine and a hugely popular (and wickedly delicious) homemade haskapa Fudge. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.
LaHave Natural Farms and haskapa pride themselves on being ethical businesses, both environmentally and as part of the Nova Scotian community.
LaHave Natural Farms has become well-known amongst local growers, offering advice and expertise to new and established farmers alike. As a result, LaHave Natural Farms were instrumental in setting up the Haskap Growers Association of Nova Scotia, which is now an independent grower’s community.
From business start-up entrepreneurial prizes to food innovation and taste competitions, we are proud to have received awards from many prestigious local and international organisations.
