U-Pick Garden

Where WE plant the chemical free garden and YOU visit and harvest the fruits and vegetables for chemical free market prices.

WE plant our garden and when items are ready we will put it on our list and U-Pick it out if the garden. SOME items we Pre-Pick. For example, items in our greenhouses, if we have excess of certain produce, if it is a hard item for customers to pick, or if waste occurs when picking, etc.

We have a first come first pick system. We can’t always update this in real time, but we update Facebook and our message daily.

We plant approx. 7 acres in garden and source our seeds from Canadian companies with Non-Gmo policies. This year we used some Canadian Gaia Green organic fertilizer, our home made compost, our old manure mix, and wood ash. We are trying out some compost and red wiggler worm castings from local Annelida Casting Innovations as well! Look for their amazing product for purchase in our check out area this year.

The yield of our produce and fruit is weather and season dependant. We appreciate the timing of this rain as we just finished planting the garden! Please scroll back to last year’s posts on this Facebook page and you will have an idea of what items and around what time of the summer it is picked. We plant a bit of most everything, so availability depends on yield and demand.

For a list of items ready to pick- First come First pick.

CHECK FACEBOOK daily or call 780-968-0099 daily we will update as best we can as availability changes.
