Just a 30-minute drive south of the city, the Saskatoon
Farm celebrates the Prairie berry in all its glory.
First off, fuel up with lunch at the Giddy Up Café, where you can have
it sweet with a Dutch waffle topped with Saskatoon berry topping and
whipped cream ($9) or savoury with the buffalo chili ($10.50).
Its prime berry time, so get your fingers ready for the U-pick orchard
(4 litres/$13). If youre not into playing farmer for a day, shell out
$18 for a berry-filled bucket at the General Store, where youll also
come across other edible goodies such as Saskatoon and Chokecherry
syrup, jam, vinaigrette and buffalo sausages and burgers.
We may never master a tractor, but who says we can’t pull on a pair of
wellies and play farm hand for a day.
