Join the members only u-pick orchard
MIRACLE FARMS is a members only u-pick farm. Only members can come pick fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers or order meats. We try to also have some items (non-meat) for sale in a small kiosk, especially for open days. If you are in a hurry, not a member or just passing by you can buy some of the foods picked at double the u-pick price. It’s a great way to try before you join.
Here’s how the membership works :
A basic fee of $65CAD entitles you to:
- $20 voucher to be used for any food in the year.
- at least one food or non-food item for free during every open day.
You can attend our open days to come relax at the farm, have a picnic, read a book, take a walk, have a nap, meet amazing people who care about the food they eat or pick whatever is available that day. You don’t need to buy anything during open days. We try to have something free at every open day for members, whatever we have in abundance. Last year that included small fruit, chives, garlic chives, flowers and herbs at different times of the growing season. Two years ago we had such abundance that we gave members 160 pounds of apples and lots of free produce, including chives and rhubarb.
You can also pre-order chicken and duck meat that is raised in the orchard. Order now and pick up the meats in the fall (september and October). Note that meat pre-orders are provided on a first-come first-serve basis.
Still not sure if you would like to join as a member? Come to our first open tour day on Sunday May 21st and see if it’s what you are looking for.
The open days are days the farm is open for members only to harvest what is ready to be picked. It is also the perfect time to come spend a few hours or the whole day with your family in the country side and see how we grow your food. This year, we will have the following food items for harvest or for sale at our kiosk :
Fruits: apples, plums, pear, fall raspberries (red, yellow, black & purple), black and red currants, gooseberries.
Vegetables: asparagus, squash, pumpkin, rhubarb, garlic, arugula, Egyptian onions and arugula.
Herbs: chives, garlic chives, oregano, thyme.
For our pre-apple harvest season, we will be open on:
- May 20, June 11, July 8 & 22 and on August 6 & 19
During the major fruit harvest season, we will be open on:
- September 3, 17, 24 & 30 and on October 8 & 15
* Our hours are always 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Looking forward to providing you fresh food and lots of great memories!
Artisanal Meat raised in the Orchard and on Pasture
Our pasture-and orchard-raised animals get sunshine and exercise while eating insects, plants and grass, fallen fruit and some supplemental grains that we feed them. They are NOT fed any medicated feed, antibiotics or growth hormones. We have raised fowls most years since 1993 (that astonished seasoned experts by the quality and vigor of our birds) including chickens, ducks, turkeys and quails, but also lamb and rabbits.
