About Us

From our fields to you!

The journey from the field to your kitchen is shorter than you think. Every bottle of Currant Affair Black Currant Juice and Currant Affair Black Currant Juice Blends begins its journey in the eastern Connecticut farm fields of our sister company, Maple Lane Farm, where we support the local economy and the sustainability of local farming. However, as the largest grower of black currants in North America, Maple Lane grows, harvests, and crushes our black currants so you can count on quality control from the field to the store shelves, and the ultimate in local freshness in every single glass. To your health!

Black Currants

Best berry for health

What are Black Currants?

Black Currant Berries contain four times the vitamin C of oranges, more antioxidants than blueberries, and are rich in iron, potassium and organic acids. Our sister company, Maple Lane Farms, is committed to growing black currants without pesticides or fungicides in a GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) certified environment using only non-GMO seed. Our products are harvested as living plants, enabling our customers to buy produce that is dirt and grit free and stays fresh over a period of time that is without parallel in the industry.
