ABOUT Sunkiss Acres

Sunkiss Acres is nestled in the beautiful Garnet Valley of Summerland. My husband and I planted 5.5 acres of Haskap berry bushes in 2017.

The Haskap is one of the most nutritious superberry discoveries in recent years. It is naturally delicious with a unique tangy sweet flavour. Haskap have 3 times the antioxidants and 4 times the anthocyanin of blueberries.

Our Haskap field is sloped facing west and receives an abundance of sun the majority of the day.

We have dedicated our effort in growing our berries without any use of pesticides or herbicides. We fertilize our field with certified organic fertilizers only. The entire field is covered with overhead bird nettings.

Our Haskap berries look good and taste good!
