It is finally summer which means u-pick fields across the Lower Mainland are open for another season of berries!
Whether you are a BC blueberry lover or prefer a plump juicy strawberry, you can pick your heart’s content at numerous farms.
Berry picking is not only a great midsummer day activity but also cheaper than purchasing them from your local grocer.
So stock up on your favourite berry that you can freeze to enjoy year round.
After a day of picking strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries in Krause Berry Farms’ fields, kick back in their Estate Winery and enjoy a glass of their berry wine.
