We are taking a number of added precautions to ensure the safety of our products and our customers.
During this time we are open by appointment only for pick up. Please phone the farm at 250-652-5227 for more information or to arrange a time to visit.
As we shift into the summer season we are exploring a number of options. We are monitoring daily and will continue to follow the measures outlined by our provincial and federal governments as well as Health Canada and the World Health Organization.
We will continue to update you here as well as on Instagram and Twitter. Please scroll down for more information on our day-to-day operations and updates from the field.
We thank you for your continued support!
We’ve been busy in the fields this spring. All of the berry bushes have been pruned and given a healthy dose of compost. Andrew has just started picking strawberries, the cherries will follow and should be ready by the end of June, and the currants will be right behind, usually by the second week in July.
Here are a few pictures from around the farm…
