About the Farm
CLOSED FOR THE SEASON
We are now closed for the 2022 berry season. Thanks for your support. Frozen haskap and saskatoon pies are available while supplies last. Unfortunately there are no frozen saskatoons this year.
ORDER THROUGH OUR ONLINE STORE
Now that berry season has passed you can visit our online store to place your order for frozen haskap, saskatoon pies and fruit plants. Credit card payment is accepted at check out and a pickup time will be assigned to your order.
OUR FARM, IN A NUTSHELL:
Our orchards are planted on 20 acres of fertile, river bottom soil at the south side of Portage la Prairie. We are conveniently located within city limits at 100 Old Bridge Road. Our country store is open 6 days a week in July and features a selection of jams made from our fruit as well as Saskatoon pies and apple cider. These items can also be purchased in the off-season through our online store.
Each year fruit picking commences in late June with haskap (honeyberries), followed by saskatoons (early July) and gooseberries (mid-July), then cherries in late July. Cranberries, plums and apples are typically ready in early September. Customers can choose to pick their own fruit or buy pre-picked fruit from our coolers. Pre-picked fruit is available fresh in July and frozen for a longer period into the fall.
Riverbend Orchards is also a licensed propagator of haskap cultivars developed at the University of Saskatchewan. We produce 12,000 young plants of the newest cultivars each summer.
