Berrylicious Adventures: Exploring Metro Vancouver’s U-Pick Berry Farms

Get ready for a berrylicious adventure like no other in Metro Vancouver! As summer approaches, it’s the perfect time to relish the sunshine and pick the juiciest, sweetest berries directly from the vine. June marks the opening of strawberry farms where you can dive into buckets of luscious strawberries. But hey, the fun doesn’t stop there! Later in the summer, raspberries and blueberries will be ready to join in on the fun. So grab your friends, put on your berry-picking hat, and let’s embark on a fruity escapade, exploring the amazing U-Pick Berry Farms scattered across Metro Vancouver.

Take the kids out to a U-pick so they can enjoy the satisfaction of picking their own food (or see how hard it is!), pat some barnyard animals, run around on the playground and perhaps indulge in some ice cream topped with fresh berries.

Before You Go

First things first, don’t forget to pack those essential summer essentials like hats, sunscreen, and plenty of water to keep you cool. Don’t forget to bring your own buckets, as supplies at the farms can be limited and may come with a cost. While we adore our furry companions, it’s better to leave them at home since pets are usually not permitted on the farms. And when it comes to the kids, remind them of the golden rule: no snacking on berries until after they’ve been paid for! We know those juicy U-pick berries are tempting, but remember, they’re not officially yours until they’ve been weighed. To keep little stomachs satisfied, think about packing some snacks to curb hunger while you’re out in the field. Now, you’re all set for a berry-filled adventure! Let’s go pick some sweetness!

Here are some tried and true U-picks in Metro Vancouver
