Our Company & our Home Town
Big Sky Ventures is proudly located in Chipman, N.B. and our berries are 100% Certified Organic. We sell Sea Buckthorn berry, juice, powder, wine and are currently looking at tea leaf with other products currently under development. An interpretative center and walking trail “Connie’s Way” are also a part of the Eco-tourism components. We have been fortunate to receive agricultural and technical training and advice from other sucessful Canadian Sea Buckthorn growers, crop specialists, and scientists and hope you will see more Sea Buckthorn products at your local grocers, pharmacies, and retail outlets soon.
Certifications & Licences
There are many licenses, certifications and permissions we have acquired for this new to N.B. organic crop including several provincial and federal licenses and approvals. Additionally, we are N.B. Environmental Farm Certified, have been EIA approved to grow Sea Buckthorn and have obtained a certificate each year as a Certified Organic Orchard from internationally recognized Ecocert. We are also members of Acorn Organics Atlantic and all staff are trained to work in an organic facility. We have food safety certifications and a Perinnia Audit with HASSP and Canada GAP scheduled.
As we finish our Sea Buckthorn harvest, Big Sky Ventures would like to sincerely thank our community, family and friends for its support and also extend recognition and appreciation to the hardworking staff, contractors and students. We were fortunate to welcome many local and national visitors who already knew of this amazing fruit and are happy to see it available in Canada on this larger scale. We couldn't do it without all of you.
