Black Fox Farm & Distillery

Formerly Tierra Del Sol

Tierra Del Sol is the family farm of Barb and John and their four children. Located in the scenic river valley near Saskatoon, Tierra Del Sol is Spanish for "land of the sun." We wanted to share our passion for the land with others, which led to the creation of our farm. Our journey began with growing flowers, realizing that while food is needed to nourish our bodies, we also need to nourish our soul. Our passion for agriculture guides us, so logically the next step was to begin producing beautiful spirits that friends and families could enjoy together. We carefully select the finest fruits and grains to grow, cultivate them with care and transform them into truly unique and enjoyable spiritsOur goal is to make products so memorable that each and every time you experience one, you will want to share it with someone else.

Fall is a magical time. We have an assortment of plant materials that come into their own with the cooler nights and shorter days. Check out our lisianthus and Cape Daisies.

Pumpkins, Gourds and Ornamental Corn

We love our pumpkins and grow thousands of them in all sizes and colours. Who couldn't love Baby Boo and Jack be Nimble? The gourds are always a hit as you never know what colour or bumps might appear. Ornamental corn is another favourite for fall decor.


Dried Flowers

We have discovered that a perfect way to extend the season is through drying our flowers. With some experimenting we have found many additions to the traditional choices.
