RASPBERRIES

U-PICK
FRESH PICKED 
FROZEN

We’re proud to offer our customers wholesome and delicious raspberries. Varieties include: cascade harvest, rudy, chemanus, and squamish. U-pick is the best way to get a large amount of berries for the best price. If you are freezing them, we recommend freezing them on cookie sheets with parchment paper and then putting them into large zipper bags once they are frozen. Using this method prevents the soft berries from freezing into one large clump.

BLUEBERRIES

U-PICK
FRESH PICKED
FROZEN

We grow Duke variety blueberries. We love them because they ripen early and produce sweet, firm, delicious berries. Blueberries are easy to pick, and like raspberries, u-picking is the most cost-effective way to get those delicious berries home. Freezing them yourself is easy, just throw them in a freezer bag and put them in the freezer! Don't wash the berries before freezing as this causes them to freeze together. Give them a rinse after you take them out of the freezer when you're ready to use them.

STRAWBERRIES

U-PICK
FRESH PICKED
FROZEN

Our ever-bearing strawberries are absolutely delicious. This variety produces one flush of berries at the end of May/early June, then they go dormant for a while. Again in July/August, they produce another, more plentiful flush of berries! This means if you miss out at the beginning of summer, there's still going to be LOTS available later on. U-Pick will be open for the late July/August producing strawberries. Please be aware that these berries are more perishable than the ones you buy at the grocery store. That is because they are picked at the peak of freshness rather than green. Berries need to be frozen or used quickly after picking - ideally within 48 hours.

U-PICKING ETIQUETTE

We ask u-pickers to follow these guidelines to help create an enjoyable atmosphere for everyone!

  1. Check in with staff before picking. We can tell you where the best picking spots are!

  2. Come prepared! It can get very hot in the fields as there is little shade. Please bring water, sunscreen, and a hat!

  3. Wash your hands before picking berries. 

  4. Please do not eat fruit in the fields. We know it is SO tempting. But think of the field like a grocery store. Would you eat food in the produce section before paying for it? Probably not. It's kinda the same thing. :)

  5. Only pick in rows designated for u-picking. Some rows are designated for our hired pickers only, or to allow the berries to ripen further.

  6. Even though we love pets, we cannot allow them in the fields for food safety reasons.

  7. No outside foods/picnicking allowed in the fields.

  8. No smoking anywhere on the farm.
