Summer of 2020
The season for our saskatoons 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. Updates will be provided here and on our Facebook page, but so far it is looking like the saskatoons will be ready for the last days in July or early in August.
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. 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. The cost for these will be between $18 – $20/4 L, depending on how much sorting they will require.
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. There is a possibility that we will be able to sell our popular saskatoon pies and scones, along with jams and jellies this year. More details will be coming!
We have a limited number of haskap (honeyberry) trees, cherry trees, and raspberries. When they are ready for picking, I’ll be sure to post the information on this webpage as well as on our Facebook page. We’ve also planted a few peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers that I’ll let you know about as well.
