This is what is happening on the farm

Tuesday picking

July 28, 2014

We are open Tuesday, July 29th from 8am to 1pm.

There are still plenty of raspberries that are ripe and ready to pick. Picking is relatively easy but will likely only last another week at best. There are so many blueberries... Picking will be excellent for the next several weeks.

Hope to see you Tuesday!

Monday info

July 27, 2014

We are open Monday, July 28th from 8am to 1pm.

There are lots of ripe raspberries and so many blueberries it looks like a sea of blue at that end of the patch. Picking will be excellent!

Natural Pastures has changed our milk pick-up day so tomorrow morning a section of the  yard will be a no park zone to allow the truck in. Thank you for your co-operation! There is lots of parking in the yard even with the ribboned off section.

For those of you who are planning ahead, yes, we will be open holiday Monday next week.

Have a good week!

Saturday info

July 26, 2014

We are open Saturday, July 26th from 8am to 1pm.

The raspberry picking is still good and blueberries are excellent, and should stay that way for several weeks to come. The raspberries will likely only last another week or so. 

We are closed Sunday and open again Monday.

Have a good weekend!

Friday berry picking

July 24, 2014

We are open Friday, July 25th from 8am to 1pm.

There are still lots of raspberries to be picked but the season is coming to an end. Maybe another week or 10 days and we will be saying goodbye to the raspberries. Don't miss out!

The blueberries are amazing this year. Lots and lots of ripe berries now and lots more to come in the next 4 weeks or so.

See you Friday!

Thursday berry picking

July 23, 2014

We are open Thursday, July 24th from 8am to 1pm.

There are lots of raspberries ready to be picked and blueberries by the bucket load. Picking should be good to excellent for both.

It's another Thursday, and another milk pick up day so there may be a ribboned off section in the yard. Lots of parking further into the yard!

See you Thursday!

Tuesday Picking

July 21, 2014

We are open Tuesday, July 22nd from 8am to 1pm.

There are still quite a few raspberries out there and blueberries galore! We have also re-stocked the fridge with water buffalo cheese and there is still plenty of grass fed ground beef and sausages in the freezer.

We will be closed Wednesday and open again Thursday morning.

Monday info

July 20, 2014

We are open Monday, July 21st from 8am to 1pm.

Raspberry picking is still very good and will be for another week or so before the season starts to wind down for the year. The blueberries are just getting warmed up. There are tons of ripe berries, and by the looks of it, it will be a very long season of blueberry picking.

Our calf barn is now at capacity plus one! 9 little ones born, 8 to go! Passed the half way mark! If you would like to have a look at the calves, you are more than welcome to do so. However, in our new area, the littlest calves can squeeze through the railings on the gates and get out of their pens so we have to keep the gate on the end of the barn closed so they don't wander out into the parking area. For the next few days, please do not go into that section of the barn to help keep our babies safe.

Have a great week!

Weekend berry picking

July 18, 2014

We are open Saturday, July 19th from 8am to 1pm.

Picking should be good this weekend for both raspberries and blueberries. The raspberries are at the peak of the season and the blueberries are having an awesome year!

We will be closed Sunday and open again Monday morning.

Have a great weekend!

Friday berry picking

July 17, 2014

We are open Friday, July 18th from 8am to 1pm.

The long stretch of hot, hot days are behind us. The  forcast is for our usual temps to return which means pleasant berry picking weather! Despite the large Thursday crowd, there are still raspberries out there and of course, lots of blueberries. Raspberries may be at or near their peak now and will continue for another couple of weeks. The blueberries look like they will still be going gangbusters well into August!

Busy days!

July 16, 2014

We are open Thursday, July 17th from 8am to 1pm.

The berry patch has had a day off and is ready to be picked again! There are lots of raspberries (unfortunately some with sunburn) and tons of blueberries. Picking should be excellent, especially in the morning. Again, Thursday is buffalo milk pick-up day, depending on what time the truck is scheduled, we may have a section of the yard ribboned off. There is lots of parking further into the yard. For those parking on the road, thank you for making sure your vehicle is all the way off of the road. Our neighbours appreciate it!

We have also added two new water buffalo babies to our herd. Clover was born Wednesday morning and a yet unnammed boy was born Wednesday evening. They are both doing really well. Maybe another one tomorrow?

See you Thursday!
