About Somerset Farms
Welcome to Somerset Farms
Hello! We are the six members of the de Windt family that live, and work, on the farm. My name is Kate (I’m the one in the blue shirt) and pumpkins are my passion. I grew up in Ontario where I went pumpkin picking every fall with my family and I LOVE PUMPKINS! Pulling back those big green leaves and seeing brightly coloured fruit underneath, is like magic.
Since I moved to Alberta, in 2004, I have become even more obsessed with pumpkins. Once I realized that not many people grew them in Alberta, I just couldn’t stop challenging myself to grow more each year. We grew 200 pumpkins in our first year and now we grow more than 15,000 a year! Thankfully, I have an amazing and supportive family who help make my pumpkin dreams come true.
Although pumpkins are my passion, I also love and appreciate nature and the beauty that surrounds us. In 2022 we decided to expand our farm and began planting strawberries, raspberries and elderberries to add to our u-pick operation. Our farm isn’t huge, but with all the hustle and bustle of daily life, we want to keep it that way so that our farm is a quiet place for families to relax and enjoy the countryside.
We look forward to providing healthy, wholesome, locally grown pumpkins and berries for you and your family!
I feel blessed to live on the land I do, and have the space to do what I love. I know everyone doesn’t have the space or time to grow their own produce, even though many would choose to, if they could.
Somerset Farms would like to be that link, from the cities, towns and counties of Edmonton, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain and Parkland County to our farm, so that families can experience the joy associated with picking their own food.
