We grow strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, black currants and elderberries. Our most popular pick your own berry crop is our strawberries.
We have them available fresh picked in our market and pick your own in our fields. Fresh picked berries are also available at the farmers markets we attend - Brooklin, Markham, Newmarket, Pickering amd Whitby. Fruit is always a part of our CSA (community supported agriculture) share box program. It's a great way to enjoy fresh picked produce throughout the season.

Although we love animals there are many reasons why we cannot accomodate your pets on our farm. Please do not bring them as there are no facilities to keep them comfortable while you are visiting the farm. Service dogs are exempt.
There have been many changes in the way we structure our pick your own due to COVID 19. Our main goal is to keep everyone, including our staff, safe while permitting activities to continue on the farm. Protocols are in place to keep our staff and customers safe. As you may already know- pick your own is a harvest only activity this year the other family fun activities we usually offer will be available as Pandemic restrictions permit. We request that you do the COVID 19 self assessment prior to visiting. You’re welcome to come if you are free of all symptoms, not been in contact with anyone who has tested positive, have not been out of the country in the past 14 days and come together only as a family group or social bubble. We do not book times but have a first come, first pick policy. • You will be assigned rows to maintain a safe number of people in the patch at one time and to accommodate the physical distancing requirement. • People in the same household or their designated social bubble may pick together. We have a limit of 2 children ages 3+ per adult. • Give yourself a quiet time in the strawberry patch. Children under 3 are not to enter the patch as it’s not much fun if you have to continually mind them as you pick. We feel it is unreasonable to expect them to understand the protocol required for safety. • We appreciate you being community minded and caring about others. Masks must be worn while picking and visiting other areas of our farm. Please bring your own. • Sorry, no sampling this year, as it requires you to pull down your mask. A hand to face activity is the way the virus is transmitted and/or spread. To minimize touch points please do not bring your own containers. Baskets are to be purchased before entering the patch. The price is based on the cost of a full basket.
