Alberta Farm Fresh Producers
When you visit a 'pick your own' garden, here are some suggestions to make the day enjoyable:
Wear loose, comfortable clothing such as a long sleeved shirt and pants.
Bring a picnic cooler with ice packs to keep those berries and vegetables just
right until you get home
Bugs and Sun:
Remember those UV rays - wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Bring some
mosquito repellent, just in case.
It is a good idea to call ahead to be sure the farm has a good supply of what
you want today - don't go home disappointed!
Please respect the grower's property and follow any written or verbal
instructions you are given.
Storage of Berries:
Berries store better unwashed. Do not wash until immediately before use. Store
in refrigerator in shallow containers, loosely covered. Use within two or three
