In an era of big box grocery stores and online grocery delivery services, it's easy to forget where food comes from and the hard work involved in growing and harvesting it. At Surrey Farms you can see the process with your own eyes and touch it with your own hands. Produce from the farms include strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, pumpkins, potatoes and corn. The berries are available for customers to pick for themselves. It's a popular spot for tourists, many of whom see blueberries and strawberries as exotic fruit. The U-pick program is also popular with families. At Surrey Farms, many children experience for the first time the farming and harvesting process. There are grassy areas and picnic tables, making it a great spot for a family to enjoy a picnic on a summer day
Growing since 1989
Surrey Farms has been owned and operated by the same family since 1989. The family began with little farming experienced and launched the U-pick program simply to get some help harvesting the produce. Back then, the farms covered 65 acres. Today they cover more than 200. Surrey farms is about a 30-minute drive from downtown Vancouver.
The Fruit Stand
All of the produce grown at Surrey farms is available at the fruit stand. Produce is picked daily, making it the freshest food available. The stand also offers produce from the Okanagan, including apples, cherries and peaches.
