Cherries!

The signs are out and the cherries are ripe! The stand will be open daily during cherry season while supplies last – just keep an eye out for our cherry signs around Stelly’s Cross Road and in Central Saanich.

We also have a limited supply of sour cherries so don’t wait, call the farm (250-652-5227) right away to place an order.

All of our berries are starting to show some colour and are getting nice and juicy. It won’t be long now! Watch us on Instagram for more updates straight from the field!

 

Cherry nets

It took a whole team and more hours than expected but we have the nets up over the cherry trees, including our newest additions. A big thank you to everyone that lent a hand!
