If these people are right, you might want to consider buying some of our frozen cherries for your antioxidant needs. They pack quite a punch beyond their great taste!

A note about freeze dried food.
Freeze drying is a process that has been used since the 15th century but became popular when astronauts needed food for space missions. The food is frozen to about -40 C and then the water is removed from the food using a vacuum. This allows the moisture to skip the liquid stage and be extracted as a vapour.
The process takes about 24 hours in a home freeze dryer and the resulting product can be stored in oxygen and light proof sealed mylar bags or vacuum sealed canning jars with an oxygen absorber. Food prepared in this way is said to retain close to 97% of original nutrients, can be stored for up to 35 years and is re-constituted using water an hour or two prior to being consumed. Meat, dairy, fruits and vegetables all freeze dry well.

July 21, 2017 Mid-Summer Update....
The 4000 strawberries that we planted this spring are busy growing and getting ready to produce beautiful berries for the summer of 2018. Asparagus did well and we expect a decent crop again next summer. If you would like frozen or freeze-dried asparagus, call the farm line at 201-886-3472. Saskatoons were not plentiful this year. Perhaps next summer. Cherries and black currants are ripe and ready to be picked, raspberries are at the beginning of their season. We also have over 1000 small square hay bales that will make some horses very happy this winter. Grandpa is here for a few weeks helping with maintenance. The baba buggy (people moving wagon) has been repaired and painted a fresh white so we will be able to transport you, your baba and all your berries to and from the fields.
Raspberries are ready to pick.
Saskatoons are ready to pick.
Cherries are ready to pick!
Small Square Hay Bales
Great hay for horses, $4.50/bale. No rain on bales. Pick up at farm.
Finished for the season.
Our apples and apple juice will be ready to purchase in the fall.
