Are dogs allowed on the farm?

We do allow dogs in certain areas on the farm as long as they remain on a leash. For sanitary reasons, we do not allow dogs right into the strawberry fields.(They are permitted on the driveways surrounding the fields) Fall is a great time to bring your pet on a leash to walk the corn maze!

Do you have washrooms?

We have portable toilets available for customer use on site. Please note that there is no running water on site.

Do I need to bring my own containers?

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 $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/quarts or pints***

Do you offer delivery services?

At this time, we are unable to offer home delivery services. We do deliver for businesses and large quantity (400 litres or over) orders.

Do I need to wash my produce?

All produce could use a quick rinse just before using it, if desired, to get rid of any residual soil/dust from pickers hands, field conditions and transportation around the farm. Produce keeps best if you don't wash until your are ready to use. We recommend not washing raspberries or, if you wish to, wait until immediately before use, as they mold very quickly. We do not recommend storing wet raspberries. (one of the reasons we try not to pick them on a rainy day)

**If you must store wet fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) your best chance is to spread the wet fruit on a couple of layers of paper towels in a single layer not touching each other, in the fridge.

Is your farm wheelchair/ stroller accessible?

No, but we try our best to accommodate our visitors needs. The farm terrain is not well suited to lighter weight (those with small wheels) strollers or wheel chairs.

Do you sell refreshments?

Occasionally, when an independent hot dog vendor is on-site. (mainly week-ends) there is food/drinks available. We do not sell or provide refreshments but we encourage your to bring your own snacks or even a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of our picnic tables.

What other facilities can we expect to find at the farm?

In the interest of sticking to our mission of being a farm, we have a fairly simple operation. In addition to our farm stand/tractor pick up/drop off area on the main part of the farm, you can find a small playground, portable toilets as well as a open ended coverall building with picnic tables inside, free for anyone to use.

**Please note that the above mentioned facilities, with the exception of portable toilets are not available in the pick-your-own raspberry fields.

Is there public transportation to the farm?

No. The closest public transportation stop is approximately 10 km's south of the farm on hwy 15 at the STARTECK building or, if you prefer to come across Kingston Mills, approximately 13km's to the Montreal Street/401 transit stop. We do have several visitors via bicycle but it's a bit far to walk from the bus stop to our farm...especially if you're carrying a pumpkin!

Parking?

Parking is free. Special needs parking is available close to the strawberry booth. Due to pedestrian traffic and car volume, to access special needs parking  on weekends or busier times, please drive up to the Farm gate and ask our greeter to direct you.


“What if I’m coming for Pick-Your-Own Blueberries or Raspberries?” you may be wondering.

Easy…for blueberries, enter at the main farm entrance, but follow the arrows to the patch instead of driving towards the farm stand! For pick-your-own raspberries, WATCH for the signs immediately as you turn onto Hughes road. Our raspberry patch is located on a different part of the farm from all of our other crops.
