Beautiful photo of saskatoon blossoms with frost, no? As pretty as it is, sadly on May 14th the temperature dropped to -6.3C in the orchard, killing the majority of our 2016 crop which was in full bloom ...
As a result we are very sad to announce that our U-Pick will not open in 2016 due to the loss of the berries.
We will still attend farmer's market from the end of July onwards! There are a couple of spots in the harvest part of the orchard that may yet yield some berries and if so, we will try to bring them to our early markets.
Regardless, in 2015 we had a phenominal crop and have lots of large frozen premium berries that we will bring to markets as well as lots of our famous pies, jams, jelly, syrup, vinaigrette and soaps! All is not lost and this is the reality of farming and we continue to work daily in the orchard to take good care of the shrubs and look forward to better luck in 2017.
Please do not forget about us for next year! We will miss having our loyal customers visit us on the farm and we wish you all nothing but the best....
We have wholesale volumes of frozen saskatoon berries currently for sale, 4 grades available. Please visit our Contact Us page to get in touch with us.
