2023 Update.

The 2023 black currant crop looks promising again this year. A couple of perfectly timed rains have helped the crop along.  At this time I suspect we start harvest in mid-July and anticipate having product available for pick-up at the farm anytime after July 27. Prices have not changed from 2022.

I always strive to have plenty of smaller (2 Kg) pails available for pick-up anytime. For the larger (20 lb) pail or cases of black currant jam, it is best to email, text, or call ahead to place a reserved order or to check for availability.

We operate on an honour self-serve system at the farm. Customers are welcome to come at anytime and help themselves in our retail area. There is a place for payment inside using cash or cheque. Unfortuantely we do not have interac or credit card services available.

We are a small family farm nestled along the shores of Lake Erie in Norfolk County, Ontario. We specialize in producing black currants, as well as our own line of black currant jam.

Black currants (Ribes nigrum) have been grown for their fruit since the 16th century in France. The variety planted on our farm is Titania. It is a Polish variety that has excellent size, colour and flavour. The black currant has been praised for its medicinal properties, as well as they’re very delicious and distinctive taste. Currants are highly regarded for their nutraceutical properties. They are 5 times higher in Vitamin C content than oranges and contain up to 3 times as much potassium as any other fruit. Currants also boast nearly 40 types of bioflavonoids. Consumption of black currant has shown to benefit the heart and circulatory system, kidney function, liver function and the digestive system as well.
