Raspberries

We offer fantastic Boyne raspberries. They have a good fruit size, are juicy, tart, and flavorful. Pick as many locally grown, fresh raspberries as you want for a fraction of the in-store price. Not only that, but raspberries that are ripened on the bush, are more flavourful and contain more anti-oxidants than berries that were picked before they were fully ripe.

Besides being a great source of antioxidants, raspberries are also a great source of fibre, vitamin C, and a wide variety of other vitamins (including vitamin K, vitamin E, niacin, riboflavin, and folic acid) and minerals (including potassium, manganese, copper, iron and magnesium).

Raspberries are generally ready a week or so after the saskatoons – about mid-August for the fastest picking. You may want to wear a long-sleeved shirt and/or light gloves for picking. All that amazing flavour comes at a prickly price. Raspberries freeze very well, so fill your freezer and enjoy them year-round!  We’ve been making cherry-raspberry-banana smoothies all winter.  We also love mixing saskatoons and raspberries in pies and jams. Our saskatoon-raspberry pie is our most requested pie!
