Welcome to Emma Lea Farms located in sunny Ladner. We are certain that once you have driven across the century old wooden bridge onto Westham Island, you will be returning often. It is only 1/2 hour south from Vancouver and on your way to the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminals.

Our farm has been in our family since 1885, starting with Joseph and Emma Tamboline. We have had our U-Pick farm for over 30 years and enjoy producing the best tasting, healthiest fruit for your family in a sustainable manner. See our Farming Practices.

We are open 7 days a week from early June until mid-August, but all this depends on the weather in the spring. You can always call us at (604) 946-8216 to get an up dated message on what products are available.

Please note that we are CASH/DEBIT ONLY.

We have a No Pets Policy on our farm. The basic reason for this policy is for the health and safety of all our guests. Although your pet may be well behaved and you a responsible owner, it only takes one who isn't and our guests could be put at risk. This is something we never want to happen on our farm. We appreciate your understanding.

Our hours are 8am to 7pm every day during the season.

We are also open weekends throughout the fall. Please check us out on Facebook for more information.

From our family and staff at Emma Lea Farms, we thank you for supporting our own locally grown fruit and vegetables. We really enjoy the goodness and health benefits from eating locally and hope you do too.


We are located at 2727 Westham Island Road in Ladner, British Columbia.

For up-to-date information on picking, please call us at 604-946-8216 or check us out on Facebook.
