Regenerative farming is where we start!
We work with the land, incorporating native plants and creating a multifaceted ecosystem. This makes Rosy Farms a unique operation and a first for haskaps. It is truly a beautiful place, to grow from and with. Rosy Farms has taken 76 acres of Alberta’s flattest, bought 2014, and Regenerating it back to highly productive soil.
-In 2005, while taking the Production Horticulture Diploma program at Olds College I started growing haskaps, on the family farm, making me Alberta’s first grower.
-While experimenting, I planted sour cherries, currants, and haskaps. The deer loved the sour cherries, bugs loved the currants, I fell in love with haskaps.
-We are very passionate about regenerative farming practices, and visitors will notice we are a no-till farming operation
-I was one of the 2020 scholarship recipients of Nuffield Canada
– A few tours throughout the days, starting at to be determined times
-Free samples available
-Opportunity for product purchase at our on-site farm store
-We will be able to cover how our harvest equipment works, how we grade the fruit, freeze, and package for sale
