We are completely SOLD OUT of our Sour Cherries already. We had very limited quantities this year due to the weather.

The next fruit to be ready will be our Crab Apples. These little apples are great for Jellies, Jams, baking and wine! Get your orders in soon to ensure you get the quantity you desire. These are available for $1.00 per pound.

Next will be Bartlett Pears, these are sooo delicious for eating, canning, wine, baking or creating our delicious Peppery Pear Salsa with (I will repost the recipe in the next few days). These pears will be available for $0.75 per pound.

Our wonderful Bramley Apples will be ready after that, these are the best baking apples in the world! They are large, firm and tart, great for pies, crisps or even mixed to make a great cider.

We are sad to say that we do not think we will be able to offer U-pick Hazelnuts this year, being such a wet spring/early summer we believe it has resulted in a very poor hazelnut year. :( We will keep you posted though.

We will be offering U-pick Blackberries this summer though, dates to come!

Our famous Garside's Fruit Farm Chickens are ready and are delicious. They are available for $3.50 per pound. These chickens are fed a top quality, locally produced grain, allowed access to a pasture outside and given no hormones or antibiotics. The average size of the bird is about 8 pounds this batch. I will be posting a recipe and instructions of how to do a Garside's Fruit Farm Beer Can Chicken later this week.

If you have any questions about any of our products, or would like to order anything, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at or by phone at 604.556.4273.
