Thanks for a great season! It was our latest ever!!

What a crazy year 2020 was for berry fans. From socially distanced u-pick, drive-thru berries and capped off with the season ending in mid-November! Now that the strawberry season is finished for another year we wanted to sincerely thank you for your support and for rolling with the changes right alongside us.

We couldn’t have made the most of this season without you and we’re ‘berry’ grateful. Stay safe, have a great winter and we look forward to fresh Heeman strawberries again in late May/early June 2021!

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

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.¬†

✖ 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.
