NEW! Haskapa in Bishop’s Landing: What’s In Store

Brand new to Bishop’s Landing is Haskapa, a locally-owned specialty shop with a bevy of delicious products made from the haskap berry. This berry is native to Japan and Siberia, but just so happens to also flourish in Nova Scotian soil. This is Haskapa’s second retail store—the original can be found in Mahone Bay, close to their berry farms in Blockhouse and New Germany.

The haskap berry’s flavour is described as a delicious mix between blueberry and raspberry with a hint of elderberry. Haskaps are also good for you, containing anthocyanins, vitamin C, phenolic compounds, and other antioxidants.

So, why dedicate an entire store to one berry? Well, the “Berry Inventors” at Haskapa have discovered dozens of ways to incorporate the haskap berry into products like juice, spirits, jams, candies, and even body scrubs and lip balm. Take a look at a few of their unique products, then come experience Haskapa for yourself!

    Found ad in West of The City magazine. Would love to try this berry. Always looking for healthy products. Was wondering if I could find this product anywhere in Ontario.
