The Berry Report
Last Updated on Monday, 25 August 2014
Who wants strawberries? Not just any berries though, these are our everbearing strawberry, Albion! If that doesn't get you super excited, you can't have tried them yet. Albion is a day-neutral variety, meaning it produces continuously all the way until the end of October. The size and appearance on these berries is only exceeded by their amazing flavour. It is the new favourite berry of many people including members of the Heeman family.
These strawberries are picked fresh 7 days a week and will be in food supply for the rest of the summer/fall. Our fields (all 14 acres of them) look fantastic so we expect to have a great run of strawberries for you all to enjoy. The price of these beauties remains only $3.75 per quart.
- $3.75 / quart
- $28.00 / flat of 8
The Pick Your Own fields are now closed for the year. We want to say thank you to everyone who came out to the field this year. Our picking conditions were some of the best in years and the season went longer than any in recent memory. We hope you got your chance to pick this year.
Our own home grown red raspberries are ripe and ready! We pick them daily and have them ready for sale at the Berry Counter around noon (weather permitting). It's hard to remember a year when our raspberry patch looked so great, loaded with lots of fruit and the flavour is fantastic. Be sure to load up while they are this plentiful! The price remains $3.75 per pint.
- $4.00 / pint
- $40.00 / flat of 10
Sorry, no Pick Your Own on our raspberries.
Our friends at Bittersweet Farms in Straffordville have started sending us their excellent blueberries and we're delighted! They are as good as we remembered and are a great compliment to our raspberries. The price will remain the same as in the past at $3.75 per pint.
- $3.75 / pint
- $37.50 / flat of 10
We can't grow blueberries on our location because our soil pH is now low enough to support them. We have a long standing relationship with Bittersweet Farms and deal with these premium growers to deliver you a quality and flavour you would expect from a Heeman berry.
If you've become hooked on fresh sweet corn we have great news. The field continues to produce great corn and we hope to have sweet corn for a few more days.
- $6.00 a dozen
- $3.00 a half dozen
- 50¢ a cob
