Show up 9 am – 5 pm (including weekends) during U-Pick season with your own 4L ice cream pails (or we sell brand new 4 L pails). It generally takes 30 minutes to fill an ice cream pail to weigh about 5 lb. of saskatoon berries.
How to get here
The closest saskatoon U-Pick to Calgary. Take Stoney Trail Exit #96 highway 22X East corner 225036 Range Road 282, Indus, Rocky View, Alberta, Canada (403) 936-5309
We charge $15 per full 4 liter bucket (ice cream pail size) which is about 5lb of berries. Fill 4 buckets with picked berries and we'll give you your 5th for free. Thereafter it resets back to 'Fill 4 and get the 5th free', and so forth. No entry/grazing fees!
What to bring
Keep covered from possible scratches, sun & bugs using light colored long sleeved clothing.
Don't forget to bring along something to keep you hydrated. It can get hot out here.
A wide brimmed hat is a good idea to keep the sun off your neck as you pick.
The sun can get quite strong, so be prepared with 40+ sunscreen.
PB is usually quite pest-free, but sometimes they can be abuzz so be ready with some good repellent.
