U-PICK Experience

We plant a conventional garden usually May long weekend into early June.

We have NO heated greenhouses, NO chemicals, NO fertilizers and usually provide irrigation only to our greenhouses. We use compost on our gardens to replenish our soil and crop rotate. Mother nature provides the rest. We get what we get! Due to this natural process, we end up with a ton of weeds and yes… we have a “garden of weeden” at times!  

WE grow the garden and YOU come and pick while enjoying a farm, fun, family setting.  NO experience necessary. LIKE our FACEBOOK page and call ahead to 780-968-0099 to see what we are picking in our gardens. We are a “first come first pick” U-pick. 

We can answer your questions upon arrival in the garden centre. CHECK in is mandatory upon arrival before proceeding to our yard or garden. We will provide a general map, pricelist and directions out to the garden and yard.
