Our Philosophy

We care from the ground up, emphasizing the importance of good soil. 

Our philosophy is to connect you with our haskaps, like we reconnect our farm with nature. Not only do we use organic practices, we use advanced farming techniques to treat the soil like a complex organism, rather than "fertilizer in, food out".

76 acres of Alberta’s flattest.

Rosy Farms has taken weathered land, bought 2014, and transformed it back to highly productive soil. 

We work with the land, incorporating native plants and creating a multifaceted ecosystem, making Rosy Farms a unique operation and a first for haskaps. It is truly a beautiful place, to grow from and with.

Andrew Rosychuk

Owner. Farmer. Boilermaker. Visionary.

It’s all fueled by a deep curiosity of how the environment works and how we work in it.

In 2005, while taking the Production Horticulture Diploma program at Olds College I started growing haskaps, on the family farm, making me Alberta’s first grower, just for fun 200 plants.

Experimenting, by planting sour cherries, currants, and haskaps. The deer loved the sour cherries, bugs loved the currants, I fell in love with haskaps.

I quickly realized though, that starting an orchard was going to take more than an education and a dream.

 
 

I dug my heels in, landed a job up in Fort McMurray and achieved my Canadian Red Seal welding and boilermaker trades tickets, make the finances of this dream come true.

All of my life experiences have culminated together in this love and passion for horticulture. Constructing from nothing, a haskap farm that will change the fruit industry in Canada. City Slicker turned farmer.

I am committed to change. The change of our industry. The change of our client's lives. The change of our health.

Onwards & Forwards.

We live in a fast paced, food safety, competitive market place, where our new industry needs to keep up.

We, at Rosy Farms, see the best way for haskaps to grow as an industry is to be at the forefront of it, even if that means we need to take the initial risk.

As amazing as the Canadian marketplace is for selling haskaps and creating products, we feel the need to establish relationships around the world, namely Japan. Currently we are recruiting clients, finding long term relationships for haskap farming stability.
