Berry Update 6 July 2017

Just a quick update on the berry situation. Saskatoons will be ripe enough for picking in a couple more days. The extreme heat we have had over the past week has turned the berries to a bright red and another couple of days and they should be ready for picking. Raspberries should be ready in about a week and a half or so.

Phone ahead to 780 387 5466 just to confirm their status.

Garden is in full production , lots of lettuce, chard, spinach, kale, onions and the carrots, beets etc. soon to come. No peas this year. For some reason they died off at the roots,don't know if we had a mole run under the row or what happened. Usually have an excellent crop, but not this year.

Still getting calls to see when our strawberries will be ready, just can't convince people that WE DO NOT GROW STRAWBERRIES

Our prices for saskatoons are still the same as they have been for the past few years, U Pick $2.00 a pound, Pre picked $4.00 a pound. Plastic pails complete with lid may be purchased at our kiosk.

We will require berry pickers on a daily basis so if you or anyone you know  would like to make some extra money just give us a call. If we don't have pickers there will not be any pre picked berries.

Pies , crumbles , jam and condiments are available daily at our kiosk and to be on the safe side, anyone wanting frozen pies, please call ahead to order and give us more than one day to fill the order

Our debit machine should be here next week if I am to believe the provider. Was advised that the card reader we purchased is no longer  compatible with their new system and we need a new one, and they cannot open our account until we purchase or rent a new one .Would have been nice to know this a month ago. Until we receive the new reader we will only be able to accept cash , Visa and Master card. NO DEBIT until the card reader arrives.

Hope to see you at the farm, just remember our TUESDAY saskatoon special, Pick three pails pay for two. Stock up for winter

Til next time
