Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Fraser Valley British Columbia?  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. Beware of copycat websites (such as the one that starts with "Eatwell", "pickit" and the ones that ends with ".farm"; they do not verify or update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China, as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly I make updates daily (each farm as changes are reported, or I find it). 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 a farm, please let me know!   I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

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

Notes for May 2018: Spring is here and that means Strawberry season is upon us!  It started in February in Florida, Texas, southern California; then March along the Gulf coast, April in the Deep South and west coast, May through much of the country, and June in northern areas. Blueberries. Are next, about a month later. Of course, cool weather crops, like Rhubarb, asparagus and greens should be available almost everywhere. Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

See these pages to find a local Strawberry Festival, or a Cherry or cherry blossom festival or a Blueberry festival.

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 or outdated, please write me!

    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 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!!"
