Aronia Berry – Aronia Melanocarpa

The Aronia berry is an indigenous North American berry that was traditionally found in the Eastern USA and Canada. The “Aronia berry” commonly called  “chokeberry” is a nutritionally dense whole food, it is a  rich source of antioxidants.

Aronia berries have higher antioxidant levels than other berries. Not only are they low in sugar, they also contain beneficial nutrients, such as quercetin, quinic, minerals, and vitamins.

Aronia tops antioxidant ORAC
value among fruits!

Antioxidant levels in foods are measured by a test called ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity). Scientists have found that antioxidants increase our bodies natural defense systems. The higher the ORAC, the higher the antioxidant activity.

The Aroniaberry Concentrate has 7,400 ORAC units per tablespoon, or 16,000 units in 100 grams of raw berry, (USDA Database Comparison May 2010) when measuring the ORAC absorption rate of the peroxyl radical, the traditional method of ORAC measurement. Besides peroxyl radicals, there are other radical sources measured by the ORAC5.0 essay developed by Brunswick Laboratories. 

The Planting Crew

Silvio’s Farm is a working farm, growing grain crops on its 101 acres. Our crops include soy, corn, barley, and wheat, but in 2010, 8 Acres were set aside for our love of Aronia Berries.  Aronia berries top the antioxidant charts having one of the highest ORAC (Oygen Radical Absorbanc Capacity) ratings among fruits and vegetables. 

In early 2010 we decided start our Aronia Farm and set out to import the Aronia plants for our fields. In late September 2010 a tractor trailer load of tiny 2.5 inch Aronia plants arrived at our farm.

Over a period of 3 days, with a crew of 8, 8 acres of these tiny 2.5 inch plants were hand planted, cared for naturally without pesticides, without herbicides,  without man made fertilizers. Our only tools were hoe, shovel, rake  wheelbarrow and scythe. Our venture was a  labor of “love, peace and joy”
