Grandpa’s Garden is a Upick We pick farm located 19 kms West of Moose Jaw close to the hamlet of Caron. We are family owned and operated. We grow fruit including strawberries, raspberries, sour cherries and melons.
We also have an extensive market garden. Some of the local favorites include our peas, beans, potatoes, corn, zucchini, tomatoes, kale, peppers and pumpkin. Check out the UPick Garden page for more info about our gardens and all the veggies we grow.
We also have bees and beehives located on the North side of our property. We're fortunate to have these great pollinators here at the farm.They also supply us with the wonderful honey we use in our fruit and cinnamon honey. In the summer, you'll see them in our gardens, esp. the raspberries. They're busy doing their work pollinating and making great honey for us to enjoy! In the winter, we keep them well-wrapped and fed in order to have them overwinter and start up again in the spring.
We have a store on the property where you can buy a number of luxury loose teas, essential oils and organically grown herbs in addition to our amazing fruit honey. There will be significant changes to our store in 2016, watch for the announcements coming in the spring!!
The magic has begun here at Grandpa's Garden, we are officially a NEW COTTAGE WINERY in Saskatchewan!
We received our manufacturing license on Feb. 13th, 2016; then last week, we had our wine consultant, Dominic Rivard, a world renowned fruit wine expert come out to the farm to help us get started.
We're not making just any fruit wine, but MEAD - honey wine! Grandpa's Garden is known for our locally grown fruit and our honey. What better way to make wine than to use both of those ingredients. AND, it tastes amazing!! For those of you who have never tasted mead, honey wine, it can be sweet or dry and we'll be having both.
Our first batches are in the vats. We're making haskap, strawberry, cherry,a raspberry dessert wine, a fabulous mead with a hint of melon, and a fruit fusion. We'll be announcing the name of our winery and letting everyone know when our first wines will be available. We expect it to be sometime in May. We'll keep you posted.
For our customers and friends who come out to our U-Pick here at the farm, we'll still have the wonderful fruits, veggies and honey you expect.
Jan. 2016 Update
It's the dead of winter and cold outside! This is the time of year when we dream of freshly picked strawberries, newly shelled peas and crisp sweet lettuce. Just 6 more months until our dreams can come true! We'll be open again for business in late June or early July. It all depends on mother nature. The good news is our honey from last season is still available. Our cinnamon honey has been very well-received, a little special something to keep you going during these frosty nights! So good, and so good for you!!
We're still busy here at Grandpa's Garden making changes to our store!! We'll have an announcement about the BIG NEWS in February.... I'll be launching it on our Facebook page. If you haven't liked us there yet, we are grandpasgardensk. Be sure to check us out, as I update the page all summer long with what local fruits and veggies we have available.
In the meantime keep warm and we'll see you again at the farm!
