Innovation has been the philosophy of this farm since 1980 when Lauraine and Bert Andrews began their adventure. First, there is the 100-acre Pick Your Own berry farm that has everything from blueberries to raspberries to black currants. Then, there is the fruit winery that produces award-winning amber, black raspberry and black currant wines, and recently added home-produced grape wines to the shelves. An on-farm market sells not only berries but also root vegetables and cut flowers fresh from the fields. And to top it off, there are numerous cost and energy-saving production innovations including an underground winter storage area for dahlia bulbs.
