Spring has Sprung!

Well spring has arrived at the farm, and all our trees are in bloom, with the bees buzzing around. We are anticipating a good crop, as the weather has been favourable during this blossom period.

We anticipate that the crops should be ready in this order, or close to it:

- Sour Cherries
- Crab Apples
- Gravenstein Apples
- Prima Apples
- Discovery Apples
- Bartlett Pears
- Prune Plums
- Blackberries
- Bramley Apples
- King Apples
- Spartan Apples
- Hazelnuts
- Jonagold Apples
- Gloster Apples
- Anjou Pears
- Northern Spy Apples

We will also have many of our vegetables available through much of the summer season.

We are also planning to offer U-pick Hazelnuts again this summer, and will post more on this when the nuts begin to fall.

As our fruit begins to grow and ripen I will be able to give more accurate times to when we will be harvesting it and will update the website as soon as I know. We do take preorders for all varieties. I do encourage preordering for Gravenstein Apples and Sour Cherries, as we sell out of those very quickly.

We do still have some free range roasting chickens available, most are about six pounds or greater. They are available for $3.75 a pound. We will be raising more chickens starting late this spring, and will have more available for sale in the summer. These chickens are delicious and locally grown, perfect for the 100 mile diet.

Garside`s Fruit Farm will be attending the Abbotsford Farm and Country Market again this year, we anticipate arriving there in August. We generally have already sold out of our Gravenstein Apples and Sour Cherries before we arrive at the market, so if you wish to get some of this fruit, best to contact us soon, for a preorder.

We will be offering a delivery service again this year. More details to come.

If you have any questions, or comments or would like to preorder any of our products, please do not hesitate to drop us a line. You can contact us via email at or by phone at 604.556.4273.
