If country-fresh fruit and produce is your thing, Our Country Garden, just East of Cambridge is definitely worth a visit. Set amidst a wooded area in the South East corner of Waterloo Region, it has been dubbed “the hidden jewel” by regular customers.
Linda and Greg Zamecnik family purchased the 20 acre property in 2002. Their property couldn’t be better suited for a market garden operation. A combination of good silt loam soil and adequate drainage make for good berries, however it’s the location—just 5 minutes off the 401—that makes all the difference in the world. Our Country Garden is a very convenient destination whether you’re bringing the kids out to pick a few strawberries, or to stop by for a couple of quarts of pre-picked raspberries— on the way home from work or on the way up to the cottage.
Our Country Garden offers customers the choice of “u-pick” and “pre-picked strawberries” raspberries and blueberries in season.
Frozen berries and rhubarb can be purchased from the farm store, a converted barn which has been decorated with country flair.
Along with fresh and frozen fruit, customers can also purchase a variety of jams and preserves.
