About the Farm
FROZEN FRUIT AVAILABLE YEAR-ROUND
3 lb or 20 lb bags of frozen saskatoons are available for purchase through our online store. When placing your order, please indicate the approximate time and day you wish to pick up. Our picking season is complete so we will no longer have regular business hours.

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 10,000 young plants of the newest cultivars each summer.
