We’re picking strawberries in great supply!

It’s true, we’re picking fresh Albion (an everbearing variety),  Jewel & Wendy – varieties vary based on the day. Each day we have Albion plus one or both of the June berries.

Strawberries are picked daily, weather permitting (we can’t pick on rainy days) and available starting at 9 am when we open. We started picking on May 19th, the earliest start to the season, ever.

Strawberries are available inside the greenhouse at the Berry Counter (as you proceed to the flower checkout) and via the Berry Drive-Thru. Drive-Thru is open 7-days a week 9 am-5 pm (weather permitting). The Berry Counter is open during all our posted hours.

Strawberries are available in great supply now and also available at many local stores near you if you’re not able to get out to the farm.

Pick-Your Own is open! For location, hours, price and more details, check our PYO page here.

Note: this page is not updated daily, it’s a general overview of where the season is as at and what’s available. For updates in hourly/daily availability, it’s best to call the Berry Hotline or store.

Apples
$10/8 lb bag
✖ Out of Season

Heeman’s carries a limited number of apples from the end of August through to the end of October. Traditionally we carry a quality apple for cooking and one that is great for eating. As we are unable to grow apples at our location due to the frigid winters we experience we get fresh apples from our friends at Delhaven Orchards in Blenheim.

We carry Gala, Cortland, Honeycrisp and Jonamac (while each is in season).

✖ Out of Season

We’ve been growing raspberries for over two decades and find they’re a wonderful compliment to our strawberries. Raspberries are usually in season from Canada Day and last for the month of July however we also have everbearing raspberries!

Everbearing raspberries are in season at the end of July and continue to fruit until the first hard frost, usually late October, just like our everbearing strawberries. That means for those avid raspberry fans a trip to our farm will earn you fresh picked raspberries for nearly four months!

Raspberries are sold in pints and in flats of 10 pints.

In Season

If you love cherries and want to enjoy them all year long there is no better way then to get yourself a pail or two (or five) of freshly picked and pitted cherries. We offer pails of sweet or sour cherries that come with pits and stems removed in 10 pound pails. If you prefer your cherries fresh and not frozen (it’s easier to transfer into smaller containers), we take orders at the beginning of the season. You can request cherries with or without sugar. We do carry frozen pails through the season and into winter.

Our pails of cherries come from Delhaven Orchards in Blenheim where they’re grown. You can call us at 519-461-1416 to place your order for pails through the first three weeks of July.

* Sorry, there are no pails of sweet cherries this year.
