Welcome!

“Know Your Grower” ~ Interest in Local Food has been gaining momentum in the past few years. More and more people are paying attention to where their food was grown or produced. Our family farm has been providing fresh vegetables to the Regina area for 3 generations. For us, the “Local Food Movement” is a family tradition. Families trust Lincoln Gardens Farm to supply fresh produce as well as provide a fun weekend destination for their children and family members!

Many of our customers ask about the history of the farm and what all is involved in growing the food they eat. As always, a visit to the farm and a chance to speak directly with us, your food providers, is encouraged. This blog also provides information, photos and stories about the farm and our growing practices. We hope it will give readers a glimpse into our lives and the daily happenings of Lincoln Gardens.

We will post info about food politics, events in the area and anything else we find interesting. Check back often as we will try to update this site regularly.

Get out of the the city and make Lincoln Gardens Farm your family’s weekend destination!

Raspberry U-Pick Now open July 2011

The raspberries are ready, a little earlier than usual and we are allowing U-Pick this season.

Please call the farm at 731-3133 to make an appointment. We reserve the right to limit the number of pickers per day. Large groups must make prior arrangements.

Please do not enter our fields without authorization. You must first report to the Store employees. We provide picking containers for raspberries; pickers cannot use their own containers.

Unfortunately we have to be very direct about this : we remind you that ONLY the berries are u-Pick crops. We Do Not allow picking of ANY other crops. You will be monitored and anyone found in unauthorized ares of the farm will be dealt with. Too many people have been ignoring our on-farm rules, and if it continues we will close the u-pick.
