About the Producers:
The Dark Tickle Company is located in Griquet, on the Great Northern Peninsula in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The company itself employs a relatively small number of people involved in processing. They 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. Berry picking, which has been historically, and still is a strong tradition in areas such as these, is now also perhaps one step in the slow diversification of a fishery based economy.

Partridgeberry:
Internationally known as the lingonberry this relative of the cranberry family is a low mat forming evergreen shrub with tiny rounded leaves. These berries grow in the dry, acidic soils of Newfoundland and Labrador's barrens and coastal headlands. Their flowers have a pinkish hue in bud then turn white as they bloom in mid-June to mid-July. The flower ovaries gives rise to a single dark red berry ripening through September's frost. Tart in flavour they are high in vitamin C, tannin, anthocyanin, and antioxidants.
