Summer of 2022
Unfortunately, our U-Pick is closed for the 2022 Season!
Last year we opened the saskatoon season July 17th, and for early picking, it was surprisingly easy to fill a bucket! This year is a completely different story. To begin with, everything was very late to bloom, and now it has become apparent that we will not have enough saskatoons to open the u-pick, and the saskatoons are the mainstay of our farm. Other fruit that we have is limited to just a few rows, and if we decide to open for a weekend when they are ripe, we will definitely let you know.
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.
During the season, we are open daily from 9am to 6pm, but we are now closed.

When you come to pick your own, we provide buckets for you to pick into, then transfer the fruit into bags for you to take home. We will have pre-picked, unsorted saskatoons available for purchase while the harvester is running later in the season. The price for these pre-picked saskatoons can depending on a variety of factors.
Baking: You are welcome to pack a picnic lunch, bring a blanket or chair, and take advantage of the country atmosphere to relax before, after, or as a break in-between picking saskatoons. We have a play area for children, and a few tables and chairs available for your convenience. We have our popular, fresh-baked saskatoon pies, scones, and crisps, available to sell this year. There will also be unpasturized, local creamed honey.
Shirley’s Greenhouses: has just brought some items to our farm that will be available for you to purchase! Come check out the cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, and herbs
Farm Activities: A sandbox, swings, and other play structures close to our store are free for young children to enjoy. Visitors also enjoy seeing our chickens and petting our miniature horses.
