for our crop update as well as days and hours open for picking.

 Our farm is open Wednesday to Sunday 9:30 till 5.

These are very different times and there are many factors we need to consider when opening our farm and pick your own to the public.

Protocols are in place to keep our staff and customers safe.  As you may already know- pick your own is a harvest only activity, you will need to purchase containers  or bags in our market.  Please do not bring containers from home.

We have been monitoring British Columbia farms and others who have already started their pick your own season and have adopted the strategies for safety that they have found successful in maintaining physical distancing, reduced touch points, the use of masks and accommodating pickers.

We request that you consider doing the COVID 19 self assessment.  You're welcome to come if you are free of all symptoms, not been in contact with anyone who has tested positive, have not been out of the country in the past 14 days and come together only as a family group or social bubble

  • People in the same household or their designated social bubble may pick together. For adequate supervision we limit of 2 children ages 3+ per adult.
  • We appreciate you being community minded and caring about others. Masks must be worn while picking and visiting other areas of our farm. Please bring your own.
  • Sorry, no sampling this year, as it requires you to pull down your mask.  A hand to face activity is the way the virus is transmitted and/or spread.
  • We have multiple hand wash stations available for you and request you wash your hands before picking, after visiting the farm animals and before leaving the farm.

To minimize touch points please do not bring your own containers, baskets or bags are available in our farm market.

You do not need a reservation to pick - First Come, First Pick

Call before coming 905-985-6749 for a daily update on picking conditions.

    Our farm animals love visitors and they will be available to visit with limited numbers of people being allowed in the barn at any one time.  Our playground is now open with a limit of 4 families and a maximum of 15 children at one time Hand washing is required after visiting the animals and before picking berries and before leaving the farm.

    Farm visit do’s and don’ts or “Farm Etiquette”

    • We welcome you as a guest on our farm. Please respect any rules and signs displayed.

    • Please leave your pets at home. They are not permitted in the market or farm area as we have animals on the farm as well as a lot of children at times.  It can get hot here on the farm while they wait.   Service dogs exempt.

    • Please park your vehicle in designated areas only.

    • For your own safety, visit only identified areas. You are visiting a working farm and a business. There are areas off limits due to safety concerns.

    • Please supervise your children to ensure a fun, safe visit.  We are a working farm and have areas that are not safe for children to be in.

    • Keep closed gates closed and opened gates open.

    • Dispose of garbage in receptacles. It's best if you have a litterless visit.  Picking in a field free from garbage is appreciated by everyone.

    • Always wash your hands after touching any animals. Remember farm animals are domesticated, not tamed.

    • When in our PYO fields, a small amount of sampling was allowed, but this year it is discouraged due to the COVID 19 pandemic.  Please treat our fields and crops with respect as they are our source of our livelihood.  We only get paid when we sell them.

    • Have fun on your adventure here in the country. Staff are ready and willing to help.
