Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Fraser Valley British Columbia? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Fraser Valley British 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. If you find anything outdated or
inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
Pricing information - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what
the typical prices are for each crop.
Remember to always check with the farm's own website or Facebook
page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or
Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally
overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with
the farm directly before you go!
And if you know of any farms I missed and want to
add a farm, please let me know!
I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find
anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -
please let me know! This website is supported by purchases you make

What's in season in August 2020, and
other timely information:
Notes for August 2020: Summer is almost here! Strawberry season is finished in all but the far northern ands cooler areas. Blueberries, blackberries
are in season in most areas, also tomatoes, peaches and most vegetables . Check your area's
copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for
Now, more than ever, going to a farm, being outside, away from crowds, getting fresh, local produce, makes more sense than ever before! It's a fun, safe
and educational to pick some fresh berries, fruit and veggies and more, then come back here to learn how to freeze, can, make jam, salsa and much more!
Of course, check with the farm before you go, both to check on crop availability and hours. We also have a
state-by-state guide to Farm COVID-19 requirements here.
See our comprehensive list of
home canning, jam and jelly
making, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access
recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.
If you have any questions or suggestions,
feel free to write me! It is easy to
make your own ice cream,
even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note,
there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now, using similar sounding names. They have all
copied their information from here and usually do not ever update. Since
2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see
anything wrong or outdated, please
waterbath canners and
pressure canners, are getting hard to find as
people are doing more home canning than ever before. You can still get them online (see links at left) but prices are going up as the less expensive models are
selling out. Food dehydration is becoming a popular and inexpensive alternative; see this page about drying
your own fruits and vegetables and where to get a food dryer.

healthy, but once the blossoms come out we use only organic sprays until the
blueberries are picked. We use a lot of organic methods (like fertilizing
with compost and organic nutrients) to help build and maintain the health of
the soil. We also employ the best science available to measure and balance
the nutrients in the soil and in the plants. (ADDED: July 02, 2014X)

Comments from a visitor on July 10, 2011:In response to
another customer stating that Maan Farms (in Abbotsford, British Columbia,
Canada) was not organic... the ad states 'uses natural growing practices' A
grower can still use these practices and still not be organic. I think
people need to understand what the true definition of what organic means. I
had to say something because the way the customer feedback sounds, it is as
though they were calling the farm owner a liar. Just my two-bits worth
Comments from a visitor on June 28, 2010: "Maan
Farms of Abbotsford B.C. is not organic. They apply non-emergence herbicide
to the strawberry patch in the spring which is typical practice for all
farms in this region."

Comments from a visitor on December 08, 2010: "So I am here
looking for local Christmas tree farms and happened upon the Willow farm
comments. A farm our family visits often. Surprised to read that there was a
negative comment I read further... I don't know if I'm the only one who sees
this or not but having spent much time there...I can tell you exactly what
the farm owners response was to "just the two of us"... No more TOUR BUSSES,
have no more room for TOUR BUSSES. "Tour busses" sounds just like "two of
usses doesn't it? Hopefully this woman will read this and give the farm a
second chance...not something you want to miss out on :)"
Comments from a visitor on October 19, 2010: "It's really unfortunate that whoever
commented that the lady at Willow View was rude got such a poor impression
of the farm. As the next poster suggested, I'm sure it was a
miscommunication. I live a few blocks from there and take my children
weekly. It is are not just families who go, by any means. I regularly see my
retired high-school teacher there picking apples with his wife. Admission is
free, the grounds are festive, the produce abundant, the staff friendly and
efficient, the kids can play for hours, the Cider Slushies are AMAZING! And
be sure to get a Snack Jack pumpkin for the best roasting seeds ever. :)"
Comments from a visitor on October 17, 2010: "I just called to ask if the farm
was open today (their website suggests it would be). The lady answered and
said yes, they were open. She asked if we were a family and I said, no "just
two of us." She quickly cut me off and said, "no more two of us." I was
confused and asked her why not, to which she said "can't accomodate any more
two of us's." She was remarkably rude and thus, I would not recommend giving
any business to this place! Clearly not a couples-friendly farm!!"
Comments from a visitor on September 22, 2009: "You can join the facebook group.
They have fall festivals, pumpkin festivals, playground and picnic areas,
petting barn and hayrides .I loved taking my daughter here. Great place for
families to come out and spend the day, and lots of great produce to buy!!"
