ORGANIC ~ NATURAL ~ WHOLESOME

Our Story

image2

Country Raised

The Heirloom products grew out of childhood memories of getting off the school bus, walking through our orchard, and picking various fruits to eat on the way to the house.  Vaughn Acres products are a result of those memories, a desire to grow healthy and natural produce for our family, and the desire to provide basic needs to people worldwide while sharing the love and ministry of Jesus Christ.  A large percentage of all our sales at Vaughn Acres are committed to ministries serving this end.  To God be the glory!

Organically Farmed

Vaughn Acres selects the very best in organically grown fruit.  The Heirloom Blackberries are grown right here on Vaughn Acres with the use of sustainable farming methods--meaning, without the use of pesticides or other harmful chemicals, and they are true to Texas size and taste!  All of our produce is hand-picked when ideally ripe, then processed in a licensed, commercial kitchen using only organic ingredients to insure wholesome goodness and quality.  They contain NO PRESERVATIVES, NO ARTIFICIAL COLORS, NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, NO CHEMICALS, NO INSECTICIDES.......ever!

Health Benefits of Blackberries

Blackberries are a super fruit which have been given only moderate notoriety for the amazing health benefits they afford.  They are rich in antioxidants, anthocyanins, flavonoids, amino acids, as well as vitamins A, C, K, E, B1, B2, B3, & B6.  Mineral wealth of the berries includes calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, potassium, & zinc.  Though receiving a bad rap for their seeds, this part of the fruit actually provides important dietary fiber as well as healthy, poly-unsaturated fats.

  

Health Benefits of Raw Honey

Raw honey is made from the pollen and nectar of flowering plants & trees. It is one of nature’s most complete energy-building foods containing vitamins A, C, D, E, K and all of the B-complex. Mineral wealth of raw honey includes magnesium, sulfur, phosphorus, iron, calcium, chlorine, potassium, iodine, sodium, copper, & manganese. Its live enzyme content is one of the highest of all foods. Raw honey has antimicrobial/antibacterial factors, key amino acids & hormones, & is virtually free of bacteria/spoilage.
