U Pick Farms are nothing new. But every summer we are totally smitten with berries and local BC fresh fruits. We are happy simply because it is an excuse to go out and do something in the sun! While holidays to Turkey isn’t always feasible, Emma Lea Farms Delta Ladner is a short drive South of Vancouver – right on Westham Island in Delta, BC. When you see a little green bridge, you have arrived at your destination! Something about slaving over my own food that it makes them taste all the more better.
Emma Lea Farms U Pick Berries is not an organic farm, but they use an integrated pest control management system to minimize the use of pesticides. Your berries and the environment is a little safer. Their farm is a fair size and the people are super friendly. Trolleys, buckets and boxes are available for use / purchase and while your precious around. It is also extremely helpful should your little ones gets tired of walking.
The farm offers a few species of berries – strawberries, raspberries, boysenberries, loganberries, black currants, etc… Sometimes berries has been over-picked the previous day so it is always good to call ahead for the most up to date picking information at 604.946.8216 or check their website www.emmaleafarms.com. The picking date can change depending on the spring weather. Prices are about $1.50/lbs – pretty economical vs $3.99/lbs at your local supermarket!
