We, as a family, started a small patch of strawberries in 2001. We wanted a project we could do together with our five children and everybody likes strawberries!
We added more as demand grew and also learned a lot as we went along. We are constantly getting rid of old plants and planting new ones. We grow the June-bearing variety called Kent which bears in July and part of August, and we have added a fall variety called Seascape which bears from August until freeze-up. Both varieties have large berries and are sweet.
In 2007 we decided to meet the demand and now grow and sell a variety of vegetables. We try to always have the in-season ones available for you to just come and buy or you can pick your own. The raspberries are floricanes by the name of Red Bounty and Prelude, also primocanes by the name of Double Delight.
In 2010 we built a small building with a cooler and covered deck and now have a nice, clean washroom!! Almost everything is wheelchair accessible. We have swings and a slide for children. We will allow pets if they are on a leash or stay in the vehicle.
