Become a member of OFRE today!

OFRE is a registered non-profit organization.  We offer annual memberships based upon the calendar year: January 1st to December 31st. Picking season starts Mid June with Rhubarb, and as the picking season progresses, we harvest Raspberries, Saskatoons, and other berries.  We then progress into Cherries, Apples, Plums and Pears.  The season extends into the first week of October, weather permitting.

Throughout the year we require volunteers for various activities including but not limited to: grant writing, assisting with cider and canning workshops, and various duties that contribute to the promotion and education of OFRE’s mission, vision, and values.

Membership info, and categories are below.
