Well, we had a very large crowd of strawberry pickers out on Wednesday, so our Pick Your Own strawberry fields will be closed for ripening during the day on Thursday and only open for the evening pick only from 6pm to 9pm. We have about 7 to 10 days or so left to the strawberry season. This means that we have lots of good picking left – lots of flavourful, juicy berries still to pick, but the size of the fruit will now start to become just a bit smaller than the earlier days of the season.
During the day on Thursday, the farm will be open from 9am to 4pm with good pea picking and Saskatoon picking available. We will not have any Fresh Picked Strawberries in the Farm Store – more to come on Friday after 11am – but we will have a nice selection of garden veggies for you by about 11am.
Give our Farm Hotline: 475 5181 a quick call JUST before you head out to the farm as the size of crowds, weather and ripening can change the availability of both our Pick Your Own and Fresh Picked produce and I change this message quite frequently to let you know what’s going on.
At the farm we accept debit, credit card, personal cheque and cash, of course. We sure do appreciate when you are able to use cash or personal cheque – in fact – we have a separate line up for that to get you through a bit quicker.
Due to food safety concerns, pets are not allowed into the pick your own fields or any of the buildings on site and we do appreciate your understanding.
If you are looking for berries in town, we are planning on being at our Little Red Barn, located in the parking lot of Home Hardware on Memorial avenue, again this week on Thursday and Friday by 11am each day. Call our Farm Hotline: 475 5181 on Thursday morning at 9:30 am to confirm availability of berries in town.
