This is the long-awaited moment of the year: self-picking is underway! What's more mouth-watering than having a nice day in the sun picking fruits and vegetables, then coming back home and cooking a fresh delicious dish? Here are the three essential spots where you can harvest a wide variety of them.
Are you up for baking a good homemade strawberry or raspberry pie? Proulx Maple & Berry Farm has the main ingredients you need! Roll up your sleeves and come pick these berries with family, friends or by yourself. This farm also has sweet corn, honey and garden vegetables; what more could you be asking for? Make sure to end your day at their booth filled with delicious products.
How about delightful jam? On toasts, pancakes, on everything! You’re right at home, at Ferme Les Fruits du Poirier, where you can pick your own fruit and then make jam in their brand new commercial kitchen. Simply a treat! The family farm gives you the chance to taste unusual fruit such as black raspberries, currants, gooseberries, Saskatoon berries, and their trademark camerise berries.
Did you know that blueberries have many positive effects on health? It is at Vergers Villeneuve & Blueberry Farm that you must go and pick them! They are fresh, juicy and sweet, therefore perfect for recipes and even more delicious when you have picked them yourself!
They are ripe for the picking!
