Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Maple Ridge Area of British Columbia?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Maple Ridge Area of 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. 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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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!

What's in season in March 2018, and other timely information:

Notes for March 2018: The northern half of the U.S. (and most of Canada, of course) are under snow. So, the crops to pick are pretty much limited to Florida, Texas, southern California and a few other areas of the Deep South.  Citus, for one, is a crop that is usually available now; and in those areas, soon also strawberries and blueberries.Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

We also have a website for both Valentine's Day information, facts and fun and one for St. Patrick's day (including great recipes for corned beef, Irish stew, etc.)

Children's Consignment Sales occur in both the Spring and Fall  See our companion website to find a local community or church kid's consignment sale!

We also have home canning, 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.  They have all copied their information form 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, please write me!

    Comments from a visitor on June 12, 2011: "I have been to Formosa for the last two years and found them very nice. They also have the best blueberries I have ever eaten. They are not cheap but they are worth it."
    Comments from a visitor on August 10, 2010: "We went to this farm to pick blue berries , the owner sitting on the bench did not greet us nor paid attention, we went to her and greeted her! and told her that we want to pick blueberries , she told us to wait , few minutes passed by another women came to take us to the farm , she told us there is a min of 5 pounds blue berries per person (20 dollars each !) we told her we do not need 10 pounds we just want to pick a pound or to just for fun , she said then you pay 5 dollars admission each and pick a pound each ! I got very upset , I said that is 20 dollars for 2 pounds of berries and you did not mention it in your internet ad, she walked away .
