June strawberries almost finished. Our raspberries plus local blueberries and sweet cherries available!

We still have a few Malwina berries (our latest June variety) available most days. As the amount we have planted is so small, supply is very tight and we sell out pretty early. Best to call before you come for strawberries. We might experience some days where we’re not able to pick any strawberries at all. Albion, the everbearing variety will be back in season by the end of July.

We have lots of our homegrown raspberries available daily. We’re also now getting in fresh local blueberries too! Adding to the mix is fresh local cherries that are also in season. Pails of cherries are also available.

Want the berry latest? Call our Berry Hotline for current availability and pricing. 519-461-1416 ext 2!

Our Pick Your Own strawberry field is now closed for the season. Thanks to all who came out and made this year one of the most fun, busy and tasty PYO seasons in years! See you in 2020 for more u-pick strawberries. Sorry, Heeman’s does not offer u-pick on any other types of fruit or on our everbearing strawberries. Be sure to call us (519-461-1416 ext 2) before making the trip out to check on supply.

Please note this page is not updated daily, rather it’s a general overview of where the season is as at and what’s available. If you’d like to double check on availability, due to poor weather (rain) and want a current daily or hourly availability it’s always best to call the store.¬†

Loaded with flavour and antioxidants, blueberries are the last berry we sell to come into season. We source fresh, locally grown blueberries from our friends at EZ Grow Farms in Langton when they’re in season around the middle of July through into August.

Blueberries require an acidic soil that is rare in our area. We can grow some amazing strawberries but blueberries just don’t like in around here (that’s why there are so few blueberry farms near London). We pick up fresh blueberries as often as every single day to guarantee maximum freshness!

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.

Sweet Cherries

In Season

We love sweet cherries but they don’t love our area. The winters are too cold near London (or around the city). For this reason we turn to our friends at Delhaven Orchards in Blenheim for fresh Ontario grown sweet cherries. We receive a fresh load in daily from Delhaven and you can taste the difference. Sweet cherry season usually starts near the end of June and lasts for roughly three weeks.

We do not sell fresh sour cherries but pails of sweet and sour cherries are available midway through the cherry season in 10 pound pails. As we do not grow cherries here, pick your own is not available.
