Berry Picking U-Pick at Emma Lea Farms, Vancouver Summer Kids-Friendly Activity

Hi girlies!

A colleague of mine introduced me to Emma Lee Farms for berry picking and I went twice this summer! The first time I picked some strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. The second time I mainly picked blueberries. I find the experience calming. And I get a big batch of fruits after. I also find it especially great when I need to host a dinner party or potluck. Prices are also a lot better than groceries stores.

My suggestion is to go there early on a Saturday. I believe they open at 8am. For the both times that I went, I arrived at around 8:40am. It gets quite crowded at around 10:30am with an inflow of families and kids. Unlike other U-Pick farms that I've heard, Emma Lea Farms doesn't require you to pick a minimum amount nor do they charge an entrance fee.

With the berries, I would make a super simple and refreshing salad that is perfect for the summer. If you're interested, I blogged about the recipe here

Unfortunately, the 2017 U-Pick Berry Season has ended, but it seems like pumpkin picking season will open from Oct 1 to Oct 31. If you want more information, here's Emma Lea Farms website!

Much love.
