Do you have extra apples or crabapples? Or maybe raspberries, sour cherries, rhubarb, pears, saskatoons, or plums?
We would love to put your unwanted fruit to use!
We have been overwhelmed with requests to pick fruit and are almost full for scheduled fruit pickings for 2018.
If you can harvest it yourself, send us a message to find out where to drop it off. Instead of cleaning up rotting fruit off the lawn later, pick it yourself and put it to good use!
If you need help picking, send us a message and we will see what we can do! We would love to help seniors, new moms, those with physical limitations or people who are otherwise unable to pick their own fruit.

Finding Prairie Cider Apples
We are currently trying to find local growing Prairie cider apples, so contact us if you think you have a contender.
The best cider is often made with apples that can be sour, bitter or otherwise undesirable. If you’ve got a tree that doesn’t produce great apples for eating, it might still make amazing cider. Because we have great cidermaking equipment, we can also take fruit that is hard to process like small crabapples. Contact us!
Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton (OFRE)
We are volunteers with Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton (OFRE) and we would love for you to support them. OFRE is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “mobilize volunteers to harvest, process, and preserve local fruit. OFRE will get the fruit in the hands, mouths, and minds of people in the Edmonton capital region by fostering community involvement and knowledge sharing.”
