20 ACRES of PERFECTION
Klein Farm grows Blackcurrants, Saskatoon Berries, and Chokecherries and as of 2019 Rhubarb in our 20 acre orchard. We are strong stewards of the land and have implemented agrinomic, environmental, and sustainable farming practices within our orchard. We are currently working towards becoming a year round, stable and consistent supplier of high quality prairie fruits in the Central Alberta Region.
Our pesticide-free orchard has bees from a local honey producer for pollination. To the right, you can see our berry combine in action as it harvests berries.
Saskatoon berries can be found in the Klein family orchard. These berries are sweeter and have a nutty fuller fruitier flavor. Our customers enjoy them for their versatility in baking. You can bake a variety of dishes including but not limited to pies, tarts, muffins, bread, cake and jams. They also lend themselves to salad dressings and snack foods.

Blackcurrant berries lend themselves nicely to making jams and mixing with other fruits to create a variety of juices. With our family farmed blackcurrant berries you can enjoy making fresh pies, treats, jams, juices, and savory sauces.
Blackcurrant berries offer an abundance of nutrients. This little nutrient packed black colored berry alone can be sour but when used with added sweeteners, such as honey, it is wonderful for both eating and baking. Blackcurrant berries are great for making savory sauces to go along with turkey, chicken, fish or lamb.

Chokecherries are the perfect choice for making jam, jellies, juices, tarts and syrup. While the Chokecherry may have a bitter taste, it lends itself to making a wide variety of flavorful products such as wine.
The Chokecherry gets its name from the fact that it can taste quite sour or acidic when eaten by itself. The berries take on an entirely different flavor when sweetened and used in various dishes.
The extract from the Chokecherry has more medicinal uses than culinary ones.
