Well, we have an update for the Little Red Barn. Due to a little curve ball from Mother Nature – a little rain storm early this morning and the projected heat coming today – we will NOT be able to come into the Red Barn in town today. Our apologies. We are going to try our best for tomorrow as scheduled, but just double check this message first thing for confirmation. Our Little Red Barn is located in the parking lot of Home Hardware on Memorial Avenue.
Due to the heat warning for Thursday, we’re going to open our Pick Your Own Fields in the morning only, but for a bit of a shorter pick, from 9am to 11am. The fields will be closed during the afternoon and evening due to the projected heat. This is the last week or so of strawberries so still really great, sweet berries out in the fields to be picked but they are a bit smaller now and it will take a touch longer to fill your baskets than it did during peak picking. We encourage you to bring your own baskets or pails to pick in – just double check that they have a litre volume on the side or the bottom as we do sell our berries by the litre. We’ll also have good Saskatoon picking and light pea picking available.
The Farm Store will be open from 9am to 4pm. We will have a limited supply of Fresh Picked Strawberries in the Farm Store by 10:30am. Just like the pick your own strawberries, the size of our berries becomes a little smaller as we head to the end of the season, but they are still super delicious and sweet! I am no longer able to take orders for Fresh Picked Strawberries. Our pea season is off to a bit of a slow start so Fresh Picked Peas won’t be available until later in the week.
The Harvest Café will also be open from 9am to 4pm with BBQ service until 1pm.
Due to food safety concerns, unfortunately pets aren’t allowed into the pick your own fields or any of the buildings on site and we do appreciate your understanding on that matter.
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.
