Opening Dates for 2019
The season for our saskatoons and other fruit is approaching. Experts have told us to expect the saskatoons to be ready to pick sixty-one days after they blossom, but that hasn’t always proved true, maybe because of our fickle Spring and Summer weather. In any case, the blossoms haven’t quite made their annual appearance, although they should be out soon. (Take a look at the picture from May 23 on the blog page to see how they’re doing.) In the past, we’ve been ready to pick as early as July 21st and other years, not until August 8th! Updates will be provided here and on our Facebook page.
We have a small brown shop at the end of our driveway. Head over to it in order to check in and get your buckets for picking. When you are done, come back to the shop and we’ll transfer your saskatoons into a bag for you to take home. If you have time, you are welcome to stay for a while and relax at our picnic table and play area.
Since the saskatoon season can be quite short, we want to be able to accommodate as many visitors as possible, so while the saskatoons are ready to pick, we plan to be open every day of the week, from 9 am until 6 pm.
When you come to pick your own, we charge: $15 for a level 4 L bucket, or if you have a partial pail, we price accordingly. In addition to that, we will have saskatoons available for purchase while the harvester is running.
We are currently working on an area where you can enjoy cold refreshments and some saskatoon baking–perhaps a slice of pie, a muffin, or a scone. This is still a work in progress, so please be patient while we figure everything out!
Honey: Local Alberta Honey (Hives are located on site!) $15 for 1 kg, and $8 for 500 g
