U-Pick Orchard

French Creek Country Retreat is excited to be not just any Upick but an aspiring young Orchard for Northern Alberta area.

We will be continueally adding to the Orchard each year so stay tuned to new additions.

Why a U-Pick if you can buy the same fresh fruit in a store? We think there are a few good reasons.

  1. You know what you want - pick exactly the size and ripeness that suits your needs.
  2. It's great exercise.
  3. It's an experience for your kids to not just HEAR from someone else but to SEE, SMELL and TOUCH  for themselves where their food comes from and how it grows.
  4. It's a great way to take advantage of our beautiful Alberta nature & hopefully sun.
  5. It saves you money: If you are going to can or freeze, you can save when buying large amounts.
  6. It is all naturally grown with little pesticides or fertilizers as we try to stay as Organic and close to Nature as we can.
  7. It is a true experience for many Albertan children to see a real orchard without going outside of our province and now they can have that experience right at home.

Currently we have planted the following varieties which will bear fruit in the next 2 to 4 years.
