Meet Your BC Ambrosia Apple Growers – The DiMarias
You know that saying, ‘you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone’? That’s essentially what two generations of DiMaria men discovered when they left their family orchard after high school to explore life off the farm. Both came back and now the older generation is passing the torch along to the younger. We took our video cameras to their orchard about a week before harvest. It’s our pleasure to introduce you to the father and son team of Tony and Antonio DiMaria. Watch Video.
The Journey of an Apple
Have you ever looked at your Ambrosia apple and wondered how it got from the orchard to the store where you bought it? Each apple goes on quite an adventure before it winds up in your fruit bowl at home. In one of our latest blogs, we walk you through the steps every apple takes as it makes its journey to you. Read it here.
DIY Apple Cide Vinegar
Historians have traced it back to 2500 BC. Over the years, it’s come in and out of popular use. Apple cider vinegar is once again trendy among the wellness-minded but it’s more than a health fad. Check outthis blog where we list the benefits you can gain from taking a little spoonful every day. Plus, we share a recipe for making your own (using Ambrosia apples, of course). Find out more about what fermenting your apples could do for you.
Our Ambrosia sample team love to share apple slices with Ambrosia lovers and newbies alike. Coming up we’ll be handing out samples of fresh Ambrosia apples at the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival in Edmonton on Nov. 4 & 5th, Regina Agribition from Nov. 21 – 26, and in Brandon at the Canada Cup of Curling, Nov. 30 – Dec. 4. We’d love to see you there and share a slice with you!
If you can’t make it to one of these events, be sure to connect with us on social media. You’ll find us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Don’t forget to tag your posts #AmbrosiaApples. Or, if you’re feeling particularly apple-infatuated, #AmbrosiaLove.
