We are known for our deliciously plump saskatoonberries. There are 3 varieties, to which you will receive adequate description on how to reach them.
We explain to first-time pickers, just how easy it is to pick the berries, giving easy tips for best-picking practices. Seasoned pickers are welcomed and freely continue to their picking spot for the day, as they are aware of how it all works.
A new feature of our Upick experience will be further education on saskatoonberry history, potential recipes and further uses.
Keep an eye out for further offerings in the coming months.
Greg Rosch is the son of Csilla and Josef Rosch, long-time Prairie Berry owners. Greg and his wife, Carly, are now continuing the family legacy by reviving the Prairie Berry Upick experience. They look forward to welcoming you soon!
– This has been a family-run saskatoonberry farm and u-pick since 2004, run by Csilla & Josef Rosch
– The berries are as natural as can be, and can be eaten straight from your bucket
– We are very low-key and focus on being customer-centred and family-oriented
– $3 per lb
– $2 per ice-cream pail, if you do not bring your own container
– Container is pre-weighed before picking
WHAT TO BRING:
– Bug spray
– Water (but we do also sell out of our mini shop)
– Hat and sunglasses
Directions: - Coming from Deerfoot (Driving direction South), turn off and follow the signs towards 22X East.
- Coming from Stoney Trail (Driving direction South), take the 22X East turn off and carry on straight until you pass a miniature airport on your right side. Turn into the next road on your left - this is Range Road 282. We are the first entrance on your right (but you will already see the berry bushes from there).
If you are on the 22X East still and see a sign for Indus to your left or reach a bend in the road, you have gone too far, and need to turn around.
Join us in August when more than 100 farms, ranches, and ag-tourism operators open their gates and invite visitors to share in local stories, see on-farm demonstrations and purchase locally grown and produced products.
