Summer of 2021
We are now closed for the 2021 Season!
We opened the saskatoon season July 17th, and for early picking, it was surprisingly easy to fill a bucket! There were so many saskatoons on the bushes this year, and we were very thankful that we missed the hailstorms. The haskaps were a bit tough to find, but those tiny amounts were enjoyed very much, and it was also surprising how many buckets of sour cherries came off of our two small rows! It’s been an amazing year for us!
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 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 later in the season. The price for these pre-picked saskatoons can fluctuate between $18 – $24/4 L, 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 home-made jam, local creamed honey, and frozen ice cream treats available.
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, herbs, and a variety of pickles, salsas, and relishes.
Farm Activities: Also new this year is an additional playground site we call our fun centre. It includes a slide and climbing wall as well as a jumping pillow. We also have a small ‘train’ set up and we are giving short rides around the farm. There are waiver forms to sign before children are allowed on any of these extras, and a charge of $5/child or $18 if there are four or more children in one family. The sandbox, swings, and other play structures close to our store are free for young children to enjoy. Visitors also enjoy seeing our chickens and feeding them dandelion greens, and petting our miniature horses.
