Q: How can I pay for my purchases?
A: We accept cash or debit only. Sorry no credit.
Q: Do I have to bring my own baskets or containers?
A: No. We have everything you need here. In fact, we prefer that you use our containers so that everyone gets a fair deal. Our containers are .75 or $1.00 to purchase but you can reuse them for a lifetime! Our baskets are made of #5 recyclable plastic so you can also put them in your blue box. We will take back unwanted containers but we do not refund for them.
**You are however welcome to bring your own containers if they are measured in liters***
Q: Do I need to wash my strawberries and raspberries?
A: Strawberries could use a quick rinse just before using them, if desired, to get rid of any residual soil but they keep best if you don’t wash them. Raspberries should never be washed as they mold quite quickly. (one of the reasons we try not to pick them on a rainy day)
Q: Do you have washrooms?
A: We have a portable outhouse for our customers to use.
Q: Do you sell refreshments?
A: Occasionally, when our hot dog vendor is on-site. (mainly week-ends) There is also a convenience store and a Tim Hortons located at Codes Corner just a couple minutes away from the farm.
Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: We do allow dogs in certain areas on the farm as long as they are on a leash. For sanitary reasons, we do not allow dogs right into the strawberry field.
Q: Do you allow children on the farm?
A: Of course!
Q: Is your farm wheelchair/ stroller accessible?
A: No, but we try our best to accommodate our visitors needs but the farm terrain is not well suited to lighter weight (those with small wheels) strollers or wheel chairs.
Q: How can I get a job at Fruition Berry Farm?
A: We hire mainly students but all are welcome to apply. We give preference to those who have worked for us in previous years and typically the remaining spots are filled by April 30th each year. You are always welcome to stop by and introduce yourself, we love to meet future employees! To apply, please send a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to the farm.
