We are situated in northwestern Alberta, west of Grande Prairie. We farm about 2400 acres of land; with a mix of canola, wheat, peas, and barley. W are a 4th generation of the farm that was established in 1926.
In 2011 we moved into Haskap berry production and opened an entirely new element of farming and marketing. We planted about 19,500 plants over a three year span and it resides on 35 acres of full drip irrigation. The orchard resides on the original homestead land that my Great Grandfather cleared.
Haskap harvest, which is in July, does not interfere with our conventional farming and fits perfectly into the operation. We are focusing and local direct and large markets with our production; with fresh being only available locally and frozen available in bulk quantities. We focus on partnering with companies to provide value-added products and believe in providing local quality food. Broken Tine also was a founding member of North 49 Fruit Corporation, formed to combine the power of Canadian producers across Canada.
Broken Tine also has a cottage winery license and produced award winning Mead from our berries and honey from orchard. In 2019 we are opening a tasting cabin on the orchard for people to sit, relax, taste and smell different haskap berry foods.
U-pick on haskap orchard, tasting of wine, food samples of haskap ice cream and jam. Crop tours will also be held
Join us on August 17th or 18th when more than 100 farms, ranches and ag-tourism operators open their gates and invite visitors to share in local stories, see on-farm demonstrations and purchase locally grown and produced products.
