The Village of Empress

is situated on the West side of the Alberta/Saskatchewan border and serves as a center to the surrounding farming and ranching community of 1,500 people. It has been a focal point for many activities in the area. It is also at the geographical center of many large cities in Western Canada: Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon and Regina.


Cathy and her husband Barry started Forks Prairie Orchard many years ago and partnered with the University of Saskatoon to produce new prairie hardy varieties of many types of fruit including apples, and cherries. They are true outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy nothing better than taking their cameras for a hike to capture the beauty of the area.
