Emma Lea Strawberries

Our sweet and juicy strawberries will be ready for you to pick, or to buy them freshly picked for you daily from early June until early July. The start date can change from year to year, depending on the weather.

We perform test plots every year to try out new varieties, always searching for the best, sweetest and juiciest berries. The berries we have to offer you have passed those rigorous tests and we are sure you will enjoy these sweet, great tasting berries that are very healthy for you.

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


  • 1. Be prepared for all weather with hats, boots, sunscreen, bottled water, etc.

  • 2. Bring your own containers such as ice cream buckets, baskets, or pails.

  • 3. We have a number of wagons available for your use to carry several baskets of fruit. You may also bring your own.

  • 4. Come into the U-Pick Stand and we will weigh the empty containers prior to picking (container weight will be deducted from your final weight).

  • 5. We will direct you to the correct field.

  • 6. Pick your fruit ripe, leaving the stems on until ready to eat or process. This keeps them fresh longer.

  • 7. Once you have your fruit, return to the stand to weigh and pay for your berries. We have sinks where you can wash the fruit and enjoy them in our picnic area near the Ice Cream Stand where we offer ice cream, cones, sundaes or milk shakes. It's a wonderful treat after picking the fruit!


    If freezing your berries, let dry on a towel, then place on a cookie sheet, single layer, and freeze for 2 hours. They will be semi-frozen by then and can be placed in an airtight container in the freezer for winter enjoyment.

    Strawberries have so many antioxidants, they're among the top three fresh fruits that pack this disease-fighting punch. Antioxidants can destroy cell-damaging free radicals, which is one reason why strawberries may help prevent cancer and heart disease.

    Please note that we are CASH/DEBIT ONLY. Please, due to food safe requirements, no pets on the farm. Thanks.
