Pick your own
Come to our farm and pick your own Black Currants in the Summer and buy frozen Black Currants year round only at the farm.
At Popham Lane Farm, we invite the local community and visitors to come visit and pick or purchase authentic Canadian black currants while enjoying the breezes of a warm, sunny day on the shores of Lake Ontario.
Our large freezer, which is capable of holding 25,000 lbs of frozen Black Currants, is well stocked with frozen Black Currants for purchase all year long! We have 4 lb pails or 20 lb boxes.
For many, the visit is their first introduction to black currants, and while picking one of nature’s most nutritious fruits, discover a new culinary experience.
Either raw, melting into jams or sauces or baked into delicious, pies, scones or muffins, black currants release their distinctive, tart goodness that brings visitors back time and again for more of this healthy treat.
We enjoy meeting and chatting with folks who have visited Popham Lane Farm before and welcoming those discovering us for the first time.
In the first few years, since opening, we have met local people from surrounding communities, many delighted that black currants are now so close at hand. We have also welcomed travellers heading home to Quebec or other parts of Ontario and visitors from as far away as Singapore and Great Britain.
Even though Summer is a hectic time, we look forward to the bustle of the season and the excitement of so many visitors. As busy as we are, when we have time, we enjoy stopping to chat with them. We look forward to seeing many new and familiar faces each year!
So, to experience the thrill of picking your own currants and then transforming them into an array of tempting healthy treats, come visit Popham Lane Farm during summer and enjoy your time here and fruits of the season.
