Alberta Farm Fresh Producers

When you visit a 'pick your own' garden, here are some suggestions to make the day enjoyable:

  • Dress:
    Wear loose, comfortable clothing such as a long sleeved shirt and pants.
  • Cooler:
    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.
  • Call Ahead:
    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!
  • Follow Instructions:
    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 days.
