About Us
South Island Saskatoons is a 7 acre Saskatoon berry orchard located on 13 acres in Cobble Hill. I think it is probably the largest dedicated Saskatoon berry farm in BC! We figure we have 7200 trees in all!

We use a granular fertilizer and a fungicide because it is so wet here! Nothing is ever sprayed on the trees after the berries have formed. We harvest the Saskatoon berries using a high bush cranberry harvester. It shakes the berries off the trees onto a conveyer belt which moves the berries into flats. We transfer those flats as soon as possible into a chiller for 24 hours, then, the berries are sorted and packaged for sale, or further production.
