The Dark Tickle Company

The company is located in the community of St.Lunaire-Griquet near St. Anthony on the Northern peninsula of Newfoundland. Dark Tickle's name comes from the company's original location on a tickle - a narrow saltwater strait. The high hills that cast dark shadows over the waters of the tickle can be seen on the Dark Tickle logo.
Dark Tickle Company has a gift store, gallery, and cafe where visitors can watch the transformation of the berries into various products through a window on the production room. Take some time to sit for a cup of tea and a tasty treat - a great chance to sample the delights made on-site! A boardwalk leads you to a typical Newfoundland bog where wild berries thrive in their native habitat. Over 30 plants are interpreted on this guided tour. You'll leave this region an expert in wild Newfoundland berries!
For those with a little more time, the second floor houses the Granchain Exhibit which tells the story of the historic journey in 1784 of master mariner Guillaume Liberge de Granchain who arrived in Newfoundland to reaffirm the French fishing rights on the "French Shore".
Don't let your visit pass without meeting the Newfoundland dogs, Sebastien and Nieves!
