We love fruit at Prairie Gardens and we love helping families, fruit enthusiasts, and fellow farmers get their own fruit forests underway! We’ve put together a tasty variety of our favourites to get you started in a range of pot sizes. All of the fruits and nuts included are zones 1-3.
Each Orchard Kit includes the following:
- Seaberry Mix: 1 Male & 2 Females

- Raspberry Mix: 2 Purple, 2 Red (primocane), 2 Red (semi-thornless)

This Orchard Package also includes a farm tour, and a 1-on-1 knowledge-sharing experience with an orchardist.
The Above-and-Beyond Big Orchard Package is flexible – we’re happy to work with you to plan the best possible orchard for your home and match your tastes as much as possible. For example, if you LOVE cherries, but aren’t a big fan of raspberries, we can substitute cherries for raspberrries. Additionally, if there’s a fruit you’re interested in, (for example, grapes, strawberries, gooseberries, saskatoons, or rhubarb) or if there’s a different variety of one of the fruit listed that you’d prefer, we’d be happy to either substitute them for a different item or add them to your package.
We’re also happy to work with you if you want to have an orchard, but don’t have enough space for everything included (or if you want more than what’s included). Just call 780-921-2272 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
