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's, Cherries and Currant's, each summer people from all over southern Alberta visit the Saskatoon Farm to pick fresh fruit and to enjoy a day in the country! The saskatoons are usually ready for picking around mid July, Cherries Late July and Currants are the same time. As mentioned above, we offer U-pick facilities by supplying the pails for picking your berries. We charge $16.00 per 4 litre ice cream pail (averages 5 lbs). For those who prefer to buy pre-picked berries, we offer pre-picked fruit for $22.00 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 surroundings. One that we're sure you'll want to come back to year after year!
