Bend in the River Berries

Just south of Moose Jaw you’ll find Bend in the River Berries. I recommend using the location coordinates on their website, we definitely went down a few of the wrong roads. Hot tip – if you go past 15 wing you have gone too far.

Ty gets credit for this adventure- I think I’m rubbing off on him!

Bend in the River offers all the berries listed below. We were there for the Saskatoons (that have another 7-10 days left of prime time).

  • Saskatoons
  • Raspberries
  • Cherries
  • Haskaps
  • Plums
  • Gooseberries
  • Rhubarb

When you arrive you receive a bucket and bag to wear for your picking. Picking the berries was very easy, since the berry bushes grow quite high the adults got the top of the bush and the kids picked the bottom.

M ate more than he picked I’m sure. S was grabbing anything she could. She didn’t realize you could eat the berries until supper that evening.

To fill our 5 lb bucket it took 30-40 minutes. They bag your berries before you leave and weigh what you picked (pay what you pick).

We seem to never deny ice cream, so we ordered some treats from the Urban Escape Café. They mostly feature sweet treats, and vanilla soft serve. The fresh berries used in our order were delicious. There were picnic tables outside for us to sit at (bonus – they had umbrellas for shade).

We checked out the chickens and roosters before again before we left. They also offer 2 seasonal cabins { Orchard View Bed and Breakfast }.

Check out their website and Facebook page for more info and up to date berry reports. This is definitely a Moose Jaw gem.
