The apple crop in Alberta can be unpredictable so we will be moving away from the U-Pick model of selling our fruit to a Community Shared Agriculture Fruit Share Program and to selling pre-picked fruit in the fall of 2017.
We recognize that people love to come to the farm and enjoy being in our orchard, so part of the fruit share will include days that participants and their families can come to the orchard and work with us in the production of the crop or just to enjoy the farm with other like-minded people.
We will maintain a small area of our orchard as a Children’s Orchard so your children can experience the wonder of picking and eating a fresh picked apple from the tree.
This new model will allow the farm to grow and be more sustainable for us as a family as well as providing our clients with a more equitable share of the crop.
Shareholders will receive a fruit box once per week for 7 weeks, approximately August 15th to October 7th. The box will contain a minimum of 5lbs of fruit, primarily apples, fresh pressed unpasteurized apple cider when available, recipes and other delights. All fruits will be labeled as to cultivar and the box will contain an assortment of cultivars that are in season. Larger shares will also be available. We will provide opportunities for shareholders to visit the farm for activities. Shareholders will be given a schedule of pickup dates and locations.

Check back to this page or visit our Facebook page for a list of fruits available as they ripen, once our orchard season opens.
The juice press may be available to juice your apples. There may be a wait for other apple purchasers, or for those people that have made appointments to bring their apples from home, to complete their juicing. Please be patient.
Appointments must be made for those wishing to bring their own fruit for juicing. We may be able to book appointments during the week, please call or contact us on our Facebook page.
We will be open for sales Friday thru Sunday 10am - 5pm once our season opens!
Self-serve Fruit Stand coming soon to fill your needs throughout the week.
Cover Charge: There is a cover charge for people wishing to tour the farm, walk the labyrinth, or take part in activities other than purchasing fruit.
