Tart, exceptional in taste, and known for their medicinal qualities, partridgeberries have been a staple of northern peoples for centuries.  These berries grow in the dry, acidic soils of Newfoundland and Labrador's barrens and coastal headlands. They are high in vitamin C, tannin, anthocyanin, and antioxidants. These agents are attributed to the prevention of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, slowing aging processes such as memory loss, improving circulation, as well as the prevention of certain forms of cancer.

The Dark Tickle offers a taste of the unique handpicked wild berries of Newfoundland and Labrador: bakeapple (cloudberry), partridgeberry (lingonberry), wild blueberry, squashberry and crowberry. As wild products from a remote location, they are free of the various chemicals nearly always associated with cultivated products. And, we use no additives or preservatives during our cooking and preserving.

We purchase from a network of approximately 100 individual pickers, covering a large area including the top half of the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, the coastal regions of southern Labrador, and northeastern Quebec. We employ a relatively small number of people involved in processing. Our plant is registered with and inspected by Agriculture Canada.

You might wonder where our name comes from? A ”˜tickle’ is a narrow salt water channel. It is also the area in Griquet where we were originally located - it's the picture on our labels. And it's 'dark' as it is surrounded by high hills.
