BERRY PICKING IN METRO VANCOUVER 2020

In Family, Food, Fun, Hot Spots, Outdoor Adventures, by Healthy Family Living TeamLeave a Comment

Have you ever been berry picking in Metro Vancouver? It’s a great way to spend a summer day as a family and to teach kids about healthy eating and where our food comes from. We are 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 2020, with notations as to 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 little ones!
Once you have a load of fresh berries what could be better than an amazing smoothie or sweet strawberry salsa & cinnamon chips?

The 2020 U-Pick season will see many changes for operators and families so always check the websites or call to make sure you know their procedures and that you are coming at the right time for a particular crop.

New guidelines for Berry Picking in 2020

  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
    There will be new one-directions guidelines through the farm and the fields. Check in to make sure you are following them.
  4. NO EATING AS YOU PICK
    Normally this is just good manners but it is especially important in 2020. 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
    Famrm operators are trying their best to give families the experience of u-pick and so lets keep their stress as low as we can.
