Have you ever been berry picking in Metro Vancouver? It’s a great way to spend a summer day & teach kids about healthy eating & where food comes from. We’re lucky to have great local farms that will let us pick blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, some vegetables, and even fresh flowers!

Below you’ll find a round-up of Lower Mainland berry picking farms updated for 2022, with notations on which types of berries can typically be found at each one, whether the crops are organic, and u-pick or not. So much fun for kids! Once you have a load of fresh berries, what could be better than an amazing smoothie or strawberry salsa & cinnamon chips?


General Guidelines for 2022 Berry Picking

  1. NO OUTSIDE CONTAINERS
    Even if they are from the same farm that you are visiting again. You will need a fresh bucket each time you go.
  2. WASH/SANITIZE YOUR HANDS
    This should be done after exiting your vehicle and before picking fruit.
  3. CHECK-IN WHEN YOU ARRIVE
    Check in to make sure you are following any one-way directional guidelines through the farms and fields.
  4. NO EATING AS YOU PICK
    Normally this is just good manners but it is especially important again this year. This is to reduce points of contact between you touching your mouth and you touching the plants.
  5. USE THE BATHROOM BEFORE YOU GO
    Locations that previously had public washrooms may not have them this year.
  6. NO ANIMALS OR OUTSIDE FOOD
    Farm operators are trying their best to give families the u-pick experience, so let’s help where we can!

Berry Picking Locations Across Metro Vancouver:

Berry picking might be later in 2022! With the wet & cold spring we’ve had, it is extra important to check with each farm before you go!
