Most of the berries are still ripening but we’re starting to pick a very limited amount daily.

We’ve now begun picking our earliest Albion strawberries. Supply is extremely limited at the moment. We’ll pick each morning and supply will grow as the days go on. It won’t be until mid-June that we’ll start to have a good supply.¬†Early fans get the berries, berries start coming out of the field each morning by 8-9am.

We expect to start picking strawberries in good volume by mid-June when our June-bearing varieties will be ripe. We’re optimistic (after all, we’re farmers) for a great season ahead, just hope Mother Nature cooperates! ūüôā

New strawberry plants are going in the ground now as well for future harvests.

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.

It’s hard not to get excited for asparagus. When asparagus is in season it means the meal possiblilities are endless. Whether you’re cooking inside or grilling it outside, served with seasoning, cheese or wrapped in prosciutto, asparagus means the start of enjoying all the good things we grow locally.

We source fresh, locally grown asparagus from our friends at Sunshine Farms in Thamesville¬†when it’s in season from early May to early June.
