U-pick Orchard Harvest Hours
Friday July 21: One Last U-Pick Evening
We are not quite done yet. We are opening the orchard for one last time for a u-pick.
So from 5 – 8pm there will be one final picking! Come on out. The picking is actually not bad. right at the centre of the orchard. There are of course some older berries, but there are still some ripe juicy ones.
So come and enjoy the lovely weather. pick a few berries. Have a date night and make a pie afterwards, bring your family and do a group pick. Bring your friends and have a party. Only condition is the orchard will close at 8. So with a DD, you can get some ice cream and have a saskatoon dessert.
Have a berry great evening and maybe I will see some of you tomorrow.
Directions to The U-pick
Directions to The Upick: From the perimeter, turn onto highway six and come 12 km to Grosse Isle. Just past the Green Grosse Isle sign there is a turning lane, turn left onto road 1 east. It is a gravel road. Come approximately 1 km past three driveways and the Rutherford farms sign on your left. Look to your right. There is a U pick sign. Turn onto the dirt road and follow it over a ditch (Yellow canola fields on both sides) until you come to a soybean field. Turn left and drive along this field. Trees on your left. At the opening in the field, drive to the orchard on your right. Wait and I will direct you to your picking alley. I will be in a camouflage gator. If you are nervous about the dirt road, text me and I will meet you at the Upick sign.
Directions to Pre-picked Berries
If you are coming from Winnipeg, come down Highway 6 to the first entrance to Warren. Drive to the T-junction and turn left. Continue to follow the railway on your right to the stop sign, past the elevator, and the four way intersection. We are the third driveway on your left . Huge sign at the gate!
