Cannamore Orchard is well known in the community for fresh and flavourful strawberries. In season (mid-June to mid-July), you can pick your own strawberries from 8 am to 6 pm. Come by yourself to relax and enjoy the great outdoors or bring the entire family along for the experience! Call ahead for picking conditions or to reserve a basket of berries in advance. Children are welcome to help out in the picking. Our orchard store is open for gift ideas, honey, maple syrup, apple butter and pies during strawberry season.
If you would like to pick berries for us contact us at email@example.com
Pre-picked strawberries are available during the season 7 days a week from 8:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.
Strawberries are not only good to eat; they are also “good for us.” They are an especially tasty source of vitamin C (ascorbic acid). In fact, one cup of fresh strawberries provides about 88 milligrams of ascorbic acid, which more than meets the Recommended Daily Dietary allowance of 45 milligrams for the average adult. Vitamin C is well retained when the strawberries are handled carefully. Capping, injuring, cutting, or juicing, however, will reduce the vitamin content.
Strawberries are low in calories: one cup of unsweetened strawberries has only 55 calories. So if you are on a reducing diet, use strawberries to add flavour, food value, and pleasure to meals. You can even eat some as a between-meals snack.
