Hi! We started to run the machine harvester yesterday but the saskatoons were leaving our farm almost as fast as we could pick them! We are selling them at $20/4L bucket while supplies last. If you like to pick your own, you are welcome to come “glean” the saskatoons left on the bushes, free of … Continue reading Pre-picked Saskatoons
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! We only have two rows, and those are not long or full, so picking will be even more limited … Continue reading Closing Day and Cherries
Another beautiful Sunday. If you’re looking for something to do today, why not come out and have some family fun at our ‘Sweet Life’ farm? Normally, people come out to relax among on the pleasant rows of saskatoons while they fill their buckets with the flavourful goodness of purple berries. It will be more challenging … Continue reading Hello Again!
We have been really appreciating all the visitors to our place. It is really fun to hear the laughter and conversations among the rows and around the play area. The saskatoons are gorgeous, and even though they are not as plentiful as in years past and don’t seem to be ripening evenly, that hasn’t seemed … Continue reading And so it continues…
WHAT A WONDERFUL WEEKEND PAST OF VISITORS PICKING SASKATOONS AND ENJOYING THE OTHER DELIGHTS OF OUR FARM! I wouldn’t say that it was easy picking, but guests were able to fill their buckets and have a good time. We were thrilled with the record number of visitors, and we’re thankful for each one of you. … Continue reading August 10th Update

From the 8th onwards until the saskatoons … Continue reading Mark Your Calendar!

However, if you enjoy going on outings and would like a place to visit, you are welcome to come out and browse around this coming Sunday and Monday. We have lots of space where you can spread out, … Continue reading Sweet Life Picnics
Is your mouth watering? I know time goes fast, but we aren’t really at this stage yet! This is one of my pictures from last year. Right now, the saskatoons are still green/pink, not the purple colour we are looking for, but hopefully in a couple of weeks they will be ready to go. We’ve … Continue reading July 23, 2020
This is a first for us…we have honeyberries (aka haskap) to offer for u-pick. As a result, we’ll be open from 1 – 5pm this Sunday afternoon, even though we won’t officially open until the saskatoons are ready, hopefully at the beginning of August. Since it takes a lot of time picking honeyberries to fill … Continue reading July 19/2020
There is always lots for my husband and I to do while we wait for the saskatoon-picking season to open. Besides the normal tasks of weeding through the rows and mowing the grass, we’ve added some extras to our farm. We love our new arch entrance to our store area, and the sidewalk we built! … Continue reading Keeping Busy
