About Us

How did the Saskatoon Berry Patch get started? Jim had retired and was looking for something to keep himself busy and out of trouble. A friend who lived down state was having success growing blueberries. With a little research, Jim soon realized that the soil in his area wouldn't be good for blueberries but Saskatoon Berries, that was another story.

Having learned from experience that practice makes perfect, he and Pat decided to plant a small berry patch on a piece of property they owned in Williamsburg, Michigan. This proved to be a good move as there was a learning curve involved. Getting the right starter plants. Making sure the water source was hooked up correctly. Bribing grandchildren into helping with the planting. All of these and more were obstacles to be overcome if the Saskatoon Berry Patch was to come to fruit.

In 2009 things were looking good. The first patch had one more year before it would start to produce even a little fruit but the outlook was good and the time had come to expand. Another plot of land was found in Williamsburg and rows laid out. This time, with the above mentioned experience, things went fairly smoothly. The Saskatoon Berry Patch was taking shape with thousands of plants and room to grow.

In 2012 the test patch should give a good yield. We have plans to make and sell Saskatoon Berry Patch Jam, vinegar and are working on putting together a cookbook. Please come back to check out our website. We will have a blog to let you know what's happening in the Berry Patch and will have soon have Saskatoon products for you to purchase and enjoy.
