We’ve just had a beautiful warm weekend, the saskatoons are in full blossom, our baby horse, Chiclet, is adorable, the chickens are enjoying the sunshine, and life is good! We have planted about 1000 strawberries plants this year and are hoping for a good crop of them, and we’ve also added some fun attractions such … Continue reading Springing Towards Summer
Spring is such an exciting season, yet even as I eagerly watch for the fresh blades of green grass to appear, the first robins to be singing in the trees, and revel in the longer daylight hours, my mind also tends to fast forward to summer, and I find myself longing for that season as … Continue reading Spring 2021

Mark your calendar… this Sunday, August 30th, we’ll be open from 1-5pm for people to come pick the sour cherries. Remember that we only have two rows, so we’ll have to do a “first come, first served” scenario like we did with the honeyberries earlier this summer.

Our u-pick season is coming to an end, and Saturday, August 22, will be our last day that we are open. Saturday is also the day that I am hoping our sour cherries will be ready!
