June around these parts means June-bearing strawberries! As posted yesterday, our 2018 harvest is limited. We will be selling pre-picked strawberries by order only. For now. Please email windhoverfarm@shaw.ca to place your order. We will respond and once the berries are ripe, set up a pick-up time that works for you. Easy? Hopefully!

We apologize that we have no ever-bearing strawberries this year. We did plant up thousands of June-bearers this spring. That means we're ready and set for a big harvest in 2019. In the mean time, "bear" with us this strawberry season. We WILL get back what the infamous winter of 2017 took.

If you made it to the site, well done. We seem to be be experiencing security issues. The site was cleaned a we pay monthly to keep it secure. As I try to figure it out, if you have access to Facebook, that may be more dependable for updates. FB has blocked me from linking to this website. Please keep checking us out when you can. And tell your people.

Now go get June started!

Well hello there and happy 2018 as we near the second half it. We are more than overdue for a farm update. Spring is always ultra busy in the field but I've missed this space and look forward to almost daily updates once the berry season starts.

There is lots to report farm wise but I will leave that for later in the week. For now, you need a quick strawberry update as '''tis the season!

Still recovering from the winter of 2016/17 which severely damaged all our berry crops, we decided to rip out all our ever-bearing strawberries and rework/build the soil. We've been planting June-bearing strawberries all month but they will not produce until 2019. That leaves us with the five rows of June strawberries we planted last May. In the scheme of acres of berries, this is a very small amount. Due to the limited amount, we will likely not offer U-pick this year. We will sell them pre-picked. Keep checking back here for updates and on Facebook in the off chance that we can't keep up with the picking and we open for U-pick.

If you would like to order strawberries, please email windhoverfarm@shaw.ca to place your order. They are $4.75/lb pre-picked. The strawberries are not ripe yet and still flowering so we are at least a couple weeks away from harvest. Stay tuned here for updates as the harvest nears.

We will update you on raspberries and blueberries as their seasons get near.

Know we're still out here doing what we do. We highly value our customers, your support and look forward to seeing you this 2018 berry season---although it will be a different sort of season. Thank you for paying attention here as we "read" the harvest and make an effort to give you a delicious, local berry experience.

Strawberry season is coming to an end and because of that I hate not to open Saturday---so we will!  But only for a couple of hours.    9am to 11am Saturday.

It is late season picking which means that although the strawberries are plentiful, some of the berries are rain or bug damaged. (I picked 7lbs in 30 minutes(!!) and was culling while I picked)

So I'll be here from 9am to 11am if you want to pick late September jewels.  We will try to open one day next week if the weather holds and the strawberries keep.  Because strawberries in the Fall--yippee!

Open Thursday 9am to noon for strawberry U-pick.

It will be the good picking that the late season strawberry patch always provides.

Celebrate the first day of fall with a big bucket of fresh berries!

A Saturday opening will be decided Friday. Check back for an update.

Happy last day of summer!

Strawberry fields forever.....

Or at least until the end of this week.  Last days of summer means last days of strawberries. This will surely be the last week of U-pick.

Open Tuesday and Thursday from 9am to noon.   We'll hopefully open Saturday if we aren't picked out.  Check back here on Friday.

Come and pick and make the most of easy to pick late season strawberries.  Late season strawberries are bigger and better than their early season sistas!

Hope to see you rain or shine.

Bring containers and cash.

Roasting chickens and pasture-raised eggs for sale also.

 

We were picked out of strawberries today so we will be closed Saturday.

Next open day is Tuesday, September 19th.

We hope to fit 3 more open days in before the end of the season.

Have a wonderful weekend.

 

Open Friday 9am to noon for strawberry U-pick.

Big, sweet, easy to pick strawberries out there!

Bring containers and cash.

Hoping to open Saturday but we'll see if the patch gets picked out Friday or not. Please check back here for an update on Friday.

Roasting chickens and pastured raised eggs for sale too.

We will open 9am to noon for strawberry U-pick on Wednesday.

Bring containers and cash.

Closed Thursday.

At least another 10 days of strawberry season left and most likely a couple of weeks!

Roasting chickens and pasture raised eggs for sale too.

Open 9am to 1pm for strawberry U-pick.

Two days of ripening-----the patch will be ripe and ready for you!

Bring containers and cash please.

Windhover Farm roasting chickens now available. $4.25/lb.

Closed Tuesday

Check back here for open days the rest of the week.

We are sorry that we cannot open on Saturday as we were picked out of strawberries today.  Closed Sunday too.

Open Monday from 9am to 1pm.

Thank you for your patience.  The good news is that we are not just hopeful but we know that the next couple of weeks should be great for strawberries.  They are making a comeback after a lackluster month where they just didn't grow/rise above the tough ie. dry, hot conditions, they were given.  They seem to be much happier these days! If you want your freezer full of strawberries for the winter, you still have time.

See you next week.
