Field day at La Belle Vie Farm: Haskap Production
Tuesday July 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for an in-person field day at La Belle Vie Farm in St. Charles, Northeastern Ontario.
Tara and Denis planted their first haskaps in 2012 and now have over 10,000 haskap plants, producing fresh harvested and pick-your-own berries, as well as a variety of value-added products. Their haskap orchard is integrated with their other farm enterprises, which include a market garden and farm-to-table kitchen.
During the tour, Tara will share her family’s experiences growing haskaps in northeastern Ontario, including considerations before planting, irrigation, pest problems and more.
Due to space constraints in the farm store, this field day is limited to 15 participants.
*Optional: if you’re interested in picking some haskaps before the tour, you are welcome to arrive at the farm at 8am to do so ($6/lb is the u-pick price).
