  • Profile

    Broken Tine Orchard is situated in northwestern Alberta, west of Grande Prairie. They farm about 2400 acres of land; with a mix of canola, wheat, peas, and barley. The owner/operator is 4th generation of the farm that was established in 1926.

    In 2011 they moved into Haskap berry production and opened an entirely new element of farming and marketing. They planted about 19,500 plants over a three year span and it resides on 35 acres of full drip irrigation. The orchard resides on the original homestead land that was cleared by the Great Grandfather.

    Haskap harvest, which is in July, does not interfere with their conventional farming and fits perfectly into the operation. They’re focusing on local direct and large markets with their production; with fresh being only available locally and frozen available in bulk quantities. They focus on partnering with companies to provide value-added products and believe in providing local quality food. Broken Tine was also a founding member of North 49 Fruit Corporation, formed to combine the power of Canadian producers across Canada.

    Broken Tine also has a cottage winery license and produced award winning Mead from their berries and honey from orchard. In 2019 they are opening a tasting cabin on the orchard for people to sit, relax, taste and smell different haskap berry foods.
