A Very Berry Roadtrip
Contrary to what you might assume the Saskatoon Farm is not in Saskatchewan.
Instead this hybrid of an attraction is 10-kilometres south of Calgary at the end of a country road that dead ends at a valley. The berry from whence the farm is named can be found in the tarts, waffles and biscuits in the café or frozen by the box beside the take-and-bake pies in the gift shop. U-pick opportunities for the berries have passed for the season, but farm fresh veggies are pulled from fields overlooking the valley and sold at the market stand. Back inside, two floors of hallways and alcoves are stocked with home décor from hefty wood dining tables to dainty wall lighting.
Eating, shopping and fresh country air, it’s a win-win-win and it’s open year-round. —Jaelyn Molyneux
