** Please note, we may close the pick-your-own fields early if we are picked out. We recommend that you call ahead to ensure  availability.

Strawberry picking season usually starts in June and ends in early July, depending on Mother Nature. As the season approaches, we recommend you call us at 613-833-2417 for updates and picking conditions before heading to the farm. Visit us daily to purchase read-to-go fresh-picked strawberries. Bring along a picnic and visit our petting farm and play park. You can also call ahead to have an order set aside for you.

Be sure to check our produce calendar to find out if our sweet, delicious berries are ready. You can stop by and buy ready, fresh-picked strawberries, or plan to stay and pick your own. Strawberries can be purchased from June to first frost (usually early October) from our farm store, or farm stands. You can also call ahead to have us set aside an order for you.

We offer 13 varieties of strawberries, ranging in colour from pinkish-red to bright red. Our berries are juicy and sweet, and perfect for snacking or for making jams or desserts. There’s nothing like the taste of Ontario strawberries!

When strawberries come from a place named Proulx heaven!

Dear Proulx Farms

Today my husband placed two lovely
Sun ripened strawberries baskets, in our van.
Not only are the sweetness and largest
But extremely perfect each and every one!
The wonderful surprise is this
I can smell something so Devine!
I am an organic rose gardener
And I am used to scents of magnificence.
So, when I returned to our van
And opened the door a flood of freshly picked
Sweetness left me almost tasting strawberry wine.
