This is a sweet BBQ sauce that has lots of flavours in it. It has rhubarb as the base fruit. It is has a lovely Hickory smoked black pepper that gives the smoked flavour and the hops comes from a local craft beer. We chose the Pesky Pig from the Troubled Monk Brewery in Red Deer as he was a rescued pig and that tugged at our heart strings. The story involves a pig escaping from the abattoir in Red Deer and living wild around the city for a number of months. He captured attention and compassion so when he was finally rounded up he was given to a gentle farm to live out his days.
Uses: This BBQ sauce is good on anything that cooks on your BBQ and can be added right into ground meat to get the flavours deep. It was featured at Delux Burger here in Edmonton and their Angus burger was topped Hickory and Hops, bacon, caramelized onions and creamy goat cheese. We thought it was a winning combination.

We use our profits to make fruit snacks for food programs in the city that support those who are in need. Over the last 2 years with the manpower of wonderful volunteers we have made and donated about 27,000 individual snacks. These are apple chips, fruit leather, and apple sauce tubes.
We also provide work experience and volunteer opportunities for those who want the opportunity to contribute to others. This is usually with the apple snack program. Some tasks are perfect for those who have a variety of limitations.
When it comes to picking we will priorize those who are no longer able to care for their fruit trees.
We use local fruit that grows in people's yards instead of letting it go to waste. We also work with other groups in the city who want local fruit for their charity or food programs. By speaking to homeowners we are able to educate them about the apple maggot infestation and proper disposal of their yard waste. By teaching preserving classes we help homeowners find ways of using their own fruits.
We compost and recycle whenever possible.
