Nestled in the heart of southwestern Ontario, halfway between London and Lake Erie, sits a little gem known as Berry Hill Fruit Farm.
In 1980, Farmer Dick began planting his orchard of apples, peaches, plums, pears, strawberries and raspberries. Recent additions include sweet corn, beets, green beans, and more.
Alice opens the fruit stand in June with luscious, fresh strawberries; a few weeks later there will be lots of fresh picked raspberries and local blueberries. All summer, seasonal fruit and vegetables are featured, including sweet corn, which is simply the best around! In the fall lots of apple varieties are available as well as potatoes, onions, squash, pumpkins, gourds and sweet apple cider.
At Berry Hill, the fruit and vegetables are completely hand-picked by conscientious staff so customers get superior quality products at the peak of their ripeness. You can taste the difference that makes! Knowledgeable staff are always available to answer your questions about the crops including how to cook and preserve all the delicious products that are grown.
The on-farm stand is open from June until November, six days a week from 8am to 6pm. Berry Hill can also be found at the Horton Farmers’ Market in St. Thomas (Manitoba Street) on Saturday mornings as well as at the St. Jacob’s Farmers’ Market near Waterloo.
