Summer Solstice has come, where is summer?

The fruit at the farm is progressing nicely despite the lack of actual sunny days. We are anticipating the fruit to ripen up a little slower than last years crop, due to the slower start to summer, but will still be delicious as always.

We expect our sour cherries to be ready for picking soon, we anticipate early July. These cherries are great for jams, jellies, wine, baking and syrup. There are also some great recipes for placing these cherries in brandy to make desserts with them. If you are interested they are $3.00 per pound. Please email or call if you would like to place an order.

The next fruit to be ready will be our crab apples, these delicious little apples are great for baking, ciders and ales, jellies and will make a delicious dessert wine. Our crab apples are $1.00 per pound.

The next apple to be ready will be our Gravenstein Apple, these are one of our most popular apples and we sell out of them fast. If you are interested in these apples I highly suggest getting in a preorder soon, as we only have limited quanitites of this variety. The Gravenstein is $1.25 per pound.

If you are interested in preordering any of our fruit or just have questions or comments please feel free to call or email us at any time, our phone number is 604.556.4273 or email us at Garsidesfruitfarm@shaw.ca

Keep checking our website for more updates, we will be posting more frequently as the fruit and vegetables ripen.
