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.  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.

August on the farm offers the best availability of vegetables, please check our upick updates below or give the farm a call before coming out.

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 & fruit into Calgary for 15 weeks during the summer during our peak growing season. Then our winter CSA is a biweekly delivery from November to February.

Our Mazes and Upick will be closed until Tuesday September 25th.  Over the weekend we received loads of snow and rain which has made the farm extremely muddy and miserable.  Sorry for the inconvenience, it won’t take much sun to dry the farm up & we will post Monday to confirm the farm will re-open on Tuesday. 

Upick & Maze Update:

September 17th – We had snow and -3C.  Unfortunately the sunflower maze isn’t quite what it was like before, but there are still blooms.  We will continue to stay open 7 days a week from 11-5 in Septmeber for those wishing to visit the farm and enjoy our mazes.  Again the sunflowers are almost at the end of their bloom, however our corn maze is still standing tall unaffected by the weather. This picture was taken from the 17th of September

Upick update – We are nearing the end of the upick season, however we still have loads of carrots and beets in the upick.

Winter Veggie CSA

Once again we will be offering a winter CSA, however, due to supplies going into storage we will only be offering 4 monthly deliveries instead of bi-weekly as in past years.

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 2018 marks the first year with organic certification ion the farm! 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.
