NEW THIS YEAR $2.00 Grazing Fee for those entering the U-Pick field. (per person)
As well as growing seedlings in our greenhouse, Paul and Karen Hamer also operate their own U-pick orchard. With 50 acres of U-pick saskatoon orchard, each summer people from all over southern Alberta visit the Saskatoon Farm to pick fresh saskatoons and to enjoy a day in the country! The saskatoons are usually ready for picking around mid July and we invite everyone to come and enjoy saskatoon pie in our Cafe and Gift Shop. As mentioned above, we offer U-pick facilities by supplying the pails for picking your berries. We charge $15.00 per 4 litre ice cream pail (averages 5 lbs). For those who prefer to buy pre-picked berries, we offer pre-picked fruit in 4 litre pails for $20.00 per pail (based on availability).
With the beautiful setting of the U-pick orchard on the banks of the Highwood River, it makes for a relaxing atmosphere and breathtaking surrounding. One that we're sure you'll want to come back to year after year!
Our U-pick orchard is generally open about mid July, and depending on weather conditions, U-pick season can last till mid August. We encourage you to contact us closer to U-pick season for updates regarding U-pick dates. During U-pick we are open 7 days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. At our farm we have easy access to our U-pick orchards with handicap parking facilities.
