I love the cafe. Also love the cats, dogs, chickens, roosters, etc. wondering around the farm.

This place is a hidden gem.

A short drive heading south (toward Okotoks) from Calgary is the Saskatoon Farm,a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. On the banks of the Highwood River this destination houses a nursery with an amazing array of plants. Exceptional are the hanging baskets which are reduced in price mid-July. At the cafe reasonably priced menu items including soups, sandwiches and pies often feature the home grown saskatoons and bison products. A variety of crafts and jewellery line the shelves of the adjoining gift shop. The "u-pick" berry season usually begins the beginning of August. There's even a facility for BBQ functions that can accommodate as many as 200 people.
Try to avoid the crowds on weekends. Also, as you drive from Calgary keep to the left lane of the highway.The signage to the Saskatoon Farm is small and easily be missed.

Thanks to Paul Hamar's berry plants, we have enjoyed an abundance of saskatoon, cherry and honey berries, especially this year. In 1987, when my husband came home with a 'stick' with some roots on it and said that it was a cherry tree, I didn't realize it was the beginning of a berry wonderful, yearly experience at The Saskatoon Farm restaurant, ice cream parlour, garden centre (love the roosters, turkey and even the pig), the market, the eclectic collection in the shop, the baked scones, pie, I guess I could go on....and on...:) Love it!

I was introduced to this place when visiting family in Calgary. I would never have found it by myself. I think is probably frequented mostly by locals who know where it is.
It is basically a garden centre, but it also has "pick your own" Saskatoon berries, a restaurant, and a gift shop chock full of neat stuff. The gardens and planters are fabulous. They even have a little farm animal display for the kids.
We ate breakfast at the restaurant, and it was great, very tasty, and reasonably priced. Service was good too.
This place is a real hidden gem.

Saskatchewan is unique! We have the Saskatoon Berry growing native in the province. You can now find them frozen all across Canada. The Berry farm is about a 25 minute drive outside of Saskatoon. It's a fun family outing but frankly, I've never understood the hype.
The gift shop is quite over priced (as are most of the Sask. Berry products on the market). The restaurant is popular but very average food, enhanced by the addition of some kind of use of the Saskatoon Berry (such as Saskatoon Berry Waffles) But they aren't anything more than you'd find at a cheap breakfast diner somewhere, and often the berry products are not super unique.

That said, if you don't mind paying tourist prices its a fun day. You should also know that there are several kiosks around Saskatoon in malls where you can by the Berry Barn products without travelling. They are a unique gift for friends or family visiting from out of province but expect to pay a lot for a little jar of something that often just has Saskatoon Berry Juice as an ingredient along with other juices like grape. Best way to enjoy Saskatoons is head for a local market, or visit a u-pick farm, and bake up a storm in your own kitchen.
