We have over 2,000 apple trees, a mix of JonaGold, Honeycrisp, Pacific Gala, Pink Cripps, Ambrosia, Spartan and McIntosh, harvested in September and October. We operate our own fruit packing house on the farm and bag our fresh apples each year into 3lb bags for sale in grocery stores across Western Canada.
We sell three varieties of organic cherries, available in July and August: Rainier (blush), Skeena (red) and Sweethearts (red). Our cherries are as large as toonies.
Rainier cherries are candy sweet and delicate with a yellow colour and red blush. We have an entire block of Rainier cherry trees on our farm. Rainier cherries are highly sought after and considered a premium blush cherry to consumers.
Skeena cherries are a dark red to almost black variety with a lovely dense, firm texture and a well-balanced sweet-sharp flavour. We have a large block of Skeena cherry trees, ranging in age from 15 to 40 years old, some of the oldest on the farm.
Sweetheart cherries are a bright red, heart-shaped cherry with a mild, sweet flavour and firm texture. We have a small block of Sweetheart cherry trees on our farm, the last of our three varieties to mature after the August long weekend each year.
We have several thousand organic blueberry bushes. Available from early July to late September, we sell two varieties of Blueberries: Duke and Elliot. Both large and tangy-sweet varieties, the two blueberries have slightly different delicious flavours.
Come visit us in May/June, for organic Asparagus.
PUMPKIN & SQUASH:
In Autumn, we sometimes have Pumpkin and Squash available, including organic Long-Pie Pumpkin. This heirloom variety, the original pie pumpkin, was nearly lost but for the efforts of a determined seed saver. With smooth, flavourful flesh, almost string-less with few seeds, this pumpkin looks like a large, orange zucchini and is perfect for pie.
