Fresh Tip of the day: Strawberries don’t get any bigger once they turn fully red in the field. Help us keep the fields clean by picking ALL sizes of the ripe fruit that are red to the tip – including the extra sweet small ones!
Our Pick Your Own Strawberry Fields will be close here at 12pm. However, although the wagons aren’t running after 12, you are welcome to walk out to the fields to do some light picking.
The Farm Store will open until 1pm with wonderful local, regional and Ontario food – like just in Sweet Ontario Cherries! We have a good supply of Picked Strawberries in the Farm Store.
The Harvest Cafe will also be open until 4pm. with scrumptious handmade baking from The Bakeshop on Boundary, over-the-top cinnamon buns from Northern Unique, as well as ice cream, homemade strawberry lemonade, “The Real Deal” Strawberry Sundaes, and our famous Belluz Family Strawberry Shortcakes. Local Hot Dogs are served up from the BBQ until 1pm. \
Looking ahead to Tuesday, we are finally heading into some peak picking! We’ll have our Pick Your Own Strawberry Fields open in the morning from 9am to 12pm AND the evening from 6:30 to 8:30pm.
The Farm Store will be open on Tuesday from 9am to 4pm and then again with the evening pick from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Fresh Picked Strawberries will be in the Farm Store by 11am and we will also have a very limited supply of Fresh Picked Peas!
Saskatoon picking will start on Wednesday. PYO peas just may start by Saturday – keep in touch for updates. Beans and other ass’t garden veg should be ready in 7 days or so.
The “Pick Your Own” experience is a bit unique in that our Pick Your Own availability can change due to weather, ripening or simply if we’ve had a big crowd here, and, therefore, our fields our picked out. That’s why we always suggest (even though we do set a “Pick Your Own” schedule of hours) that you call our info line: 475 5181 or check in with these updates for DAILY picking conditions.

For those of you looking for information on the Little Red Barn: We are certainly hoping there will be enough yield this year to be at the Little Red Barn with berries and vegetables. At this point, it doesn’t look like we’ll be starting at the Little Red Barn until July 18th or 19th. But do keep in touch, because if things change we will definitely post the information here on our Farm Updates page and have it on our info line as well: 475 5181
We know your furry family members love to take a drive out to the country, however, due to health and safety concerns for both humans and our farm animals, we cannot have any pets in the Pick Your Own fields, the Farm Store, the Greenhouse or the Children’s Play Area.
