Upick & Maze Update:

Our Upick gardens and Mazes will open Monday August 8th for the season.  During August we will be open 7 days a week 11-5.

In our upick we have  lots of flowers, potatoes, onions, zucchini, peas, beans, Kohlrabi & Flowers.

The Second Flush of Strawberries is just getting started.  All we need is sun.

If you are interested in visiting the farn when the sunflower maze is in full bloom, I would recommend waiting until after August 28th.  Please call ahead if you are interested in Strawberries to see how our supply is each day, we can not guarantee strawberries as our crop is not as large as expected this year.

Upick & Mazes

Our Upick Strawberry, Vegetable & Flower Gardens are open during the summer for families to enjoy along side our legendary collection of Mazes.  The most Unique maze is Alberta’s only Sunflower Maze Grown from 100,000 Sunflowers.  Visitors can also challenge our Corn Maze and growing collection of Tree & Patio Mazes. U-pick season kicks off in July with U-pick Strawberries & Flowers with Upick veggies & the Mazes opening in August.  All our vegetables, berries, flowers & mazes are grown without the use of any synthetic fertilizers or herbicides & our farm is in transition to organic production.

Farmers Markets

Can’t Make it to the Farm? No worries, there is a good chance you can find our produce at a Farmers Market near you, both during many fantastic summer markets, but also at a collection of great year round markets.  We attend markets ourselves in Calgary and work with others to distribute our produce in Red Deer, Lacombe, Camrose & Canmore.

Primarily at markets you will find our root veggies & brassicas such as broccoli, caluiflower, cabbage & kohlrabi, while our partners grow the lettuce, zucchini,

Community Supported Agriculture

Looking for a way to support local farms? Our Community Supported Agriculture Program may be a great fit for you.  CSA’s are a great way to support local farms and eat seasonably, by investing in a seasons crop sharing the production risks and rewards with a local farmer.

With our CSA Program we deliver veggies, eggs & fruit into Calgary for 16 weeks during the summer during our peak growing season. Then our winter CSA is a biweekly delivery from November to February.

Eagle Creek Farms is a Family Farm Located in Central Alberta

The Mills Family moved to the farm in Bowden, Alberta back in 1921 and have continued on the tradition of farming for 4 generations.   Today’s farm is much different than in the early part of the century, however farm still revolves around the family. Recently John has started raising a family while farming with his father Stan.

We are proud to grow all our veggies, flowers, berries & mazes without the use of synthetic herbicides or fertilizers

2008 was the year we started transitioning the farm to organic production and hope to have Organic Certification in the next few years.  We have had some successes and failures over the years, and are happy to share our journey with you, either for your interest if you purchase food from us, or if your starting on your own path into Organic Farming.
