Frequently asked questions

Where are you located?

Our strawberries and raspberries are grown at our Coulson Ridge Farm (82 Horseshoe Valley Road - between line 7 and line 8 - see map below)

Are your berries organic?

No.   On our farm we use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) instead.  This means that while we do have chemicals on hand if they are needed we try very hard to avoid needing to use them through prevention methods such as cultivation, weeding, growing varieties that are more disease resistant, etc.  

Are your berries GMO’s (genetically modified organisms)?

No.   None of the produce we grow are GMO’s 

Can we bring children or pets to the field?

Children are welcome to come to the berry patch but must always be accompanied by an adult and be on good behavior (no playing tag in the berry patch for instance).   Pets will not be allowed into the berry patch and customers are encouraged to leave them at home (working animals exempt).

Can we bring our own containers for picking?

Yes.   However, since we charge based on volume all baskets and containers must have a manufacturer’s label on them that indicate the volume in Litres.  A hand written volume on the side of a container does not count.

How long does the season last?

A typical berry season in this area lasts for 3-4 weeks depending on weather.  

Can you accommodate Bus Groups?

No, we are not set up to accommodate buses in our fields.

 

I don't want to Pick My Own... can I buy them already picked?

Yes, we have fresh-picked berries daily (weather permitting) at the market shop, next to the greenhouses (596 Horseshoe Valley Road)
