With the involvement of their children, as well as expanding farm operations - the McLean family needed more land on which to grow the wide variety of crops they harvest and sell. In 2010, they bought a second berry farm that had been for sale, very near to their own home farm. In the summer of 2010 Ben and his fiancÚ (now his wife), moved into the farmhouse on the second farm and Buckhorn Berry Farm was welcomed into the McLean family business.
A beautiful farm located only three kilometers from their first location, Buckhorn Berry Farm has many strawberry and raspberry plants which will be ready to harvest in the coming seasons. The annual Pumpkin Festival will continue to celebrate the fall harvest, and the McLean family looks forward to being able to grow more wonderful produce for people to enjoy. This farm has already proven to be a wonderful location for growing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and the McLean’s look forward to being able to grow and harvest these for years to come.
Buckhorn Berry Farm was originally homesteaded in the 1800`s. In 1968 Don Caza bought the farm and built it into a PYO strawberry and raspberry farm. In 1988 the farm again changed hands and was bought by Lee and Wendy Etherington. In 2010, Lee decided to persue a different line of work and the farm was bought by the McLean family.
To differentiate between their first farm and the new farm, the farm on Berrie Road will now be called the Buckhorn Berry Farm..
