Thank You, Bloomberg!

Another volunteer work team from Bloomberg came out to Snyder’s Farm to help pick Aronia berries.  Aronia berries, (Chokeberries) are cultivated as ornamental plants and as food products. The sour berries can be eaten raw off the bush, but are more frequently processed. They can be found in wine, jam, syrup, juice, soft spreads, tea, salsa, chili starters, extracts, beer, ice cream, gummies and tinctures. The name “chokeberry” comes from the astringency of the fruits, which create a sensation making one’s mouth pucker.

We thank Bloomberg for their helping hands helping Bentley and Snyder’s Farm for their generous produce donations!
