For being so early in the season, it has been surprisingly easy to fill a bucket with perfect saskatoons! Guests the last couple of days have been thrilled with the results of their labour. There have been more haskaps ripening up as well. They are a tiny variety, and require patience to pick, but again … Continue reading July 19
Tomorrow is our opening day for the saskatoons! Mike and I were working hard getting some water to the bushes. The saskatoon harvest looks to be plentiful, and although it is still in the early stages, the ripe berries are large and delicious! Continue reading Getting Ready!
Today as Mike and I were weeding along a row of saskatoons, we were pleasantly surprised to see several that were ready to pick. It’s still too early to be able to pick clusters, but for the eager saskatoon-lover who wants an early start on their 2021 season, we’ll be open every day starting July … Continue reading Start Making Your Plans to Visit
Hi friends. In the spirit of full disclosure, the ripe haskaps (honeyberries) are getting scarce and it isn’t easy picking. However, if you are mostly looking for an outing, we will still be open from 9am to 6pm, and you can enjoy the baking and our farm attractions. We have a fun centre that is … Continue reading July 10

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. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for a great … Continue reading Sour Cherries
Well that sure didn’t take long! We ran our harvester down the rows the last couple of nights, and each day we completely sold out of the saskatoons we had just collected! There definitely weren’t many this year, so kudos to all of you who successfully filled your buckets! We still plan to be open … Continue reading SOLD OUT!
