Picking Season 2017
Our strawberry plants started to bloom end of May. Since the flower formation, it takes about a month for them to grow and become a beautiful and delicious fruit. We expect to start picking in the middle of June. We grow June strawberries which produce fruit in June and part of July.
Please Check Before Heading Out
There are times when we have to close u-pick due to weather or when berries are picked out and need to ripen. If you want to make sure the strawberries are available, please call first or follow us on Facebook for current updates and announcements.

2017 Picking Season
Our haskap plants started to bloom in May. Since the flower formation, it takes about a month for them to grow and become a beautiful and delicious fruit. We expect to start picking in June. Haskaps are very tender and need to be picked quickly when they ripe. They flower all at once hence the season is very short and lasts only about 2 weeks.
The name haskaps comes from Japan. They are also called honeysuckles or honeyberries. The berries are dark blue in colour and elongated in shape. The fruit is sweet and tart with hint of blueberry and raspberry flavour.
How to Pick:
For best taste, pick deep-blue colored berries.
Store haskaps in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Wash them just before using them.
