Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Delta and Surrey areas of Columbia? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Delta and Surrey areas of Columbia,
sorted by county. Those that offer organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name
(see "What does Organic mean?"). The U-pick crops they offer follow the name of the farm. To search the page for a specific crop, use Ctrl-F (or on an ipad or Mac, use their "search on this page" function)
If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. Beware of copycat websites (such as the one that starts with "pickit" and the one that ends with ".farms"; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm,
and I make updates daily (each farm as their info changes). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the
information, please let me know!

Comments from a visitor on August 11, 2011: "I would like to ask you to add the following customer review under the Bissett
Farms (also Westham Island Estate Winery ). we ought to expose some unfriendly
farmers. This July I went to pick up some blackberry but due to the misleading signs, i
picked up about 10 pounds boysberry. It was okay for me. however, after I paid
the money and tried to transfer some berries to the other paper box, the owner
ran to me with unspeakable rudeness and madness, shouting with questions like "
what is he doing?", "The box can be used by other customers." "Get out and I can
say whatever I want to say." It was very unpleasant experience while picked up
some berries. I recommend them absolutely not as they were so rude and
prejudice. when the owner tried to kick me out, I told her that the good day is
outside but not inside. what a terrible farm owner. I post this message to
alert others be aware of their irrational attitude. and their fruits were much
worse than other adjacent farms. The farm was poorly managed by them as well.
stay away from them and enjoy your days.
please post this under this farm so others may be aware of what they did. "
