The taste of fresh picked raspberries is like no other.
Have you tried picking raspberries before? We feel it is one of the best activities you can do in the summer. It is so peaceful and the smell of the field is amazing.
Raspberries are normally ready around July 1st but this can change year to year depending on the weather.
If you don't have time to pick, we have ready picked raspberries available.
For up-to-date information on picking or request product be put on hold for you, please call us at 604-946-8216 or check us out on Facebook.
Picking Raspberries at Emma Lea Farms:
- Be prepared for all weather with hats, boots, sunscreen, bottled water, etc.
- Please do not bring personal containers to the farm this season. We will be selling new buckets for you to purchase berries by the volume. This decreases customer and staff interaction by 50%, allows the farm to have a one way flow of traffic and allows all u-pick sales to be handles outdoors. We appreciate your understanding with this. Please note: you can bring back your 2020 buckets for a $1 discount off the u-pick price. No plastic bags are allowed in the field. We encourage you to leave all bags at home. If you need to bring a backpack, it will be searched upon exiting the farm.
- Unfortunately, we are not supply wagons for u-pick this summer. We welcome you to bring your own!
- Please check in at the white tent just left of the main farm market upon arrival and sanitize your hands before entering the fields.
- Please only pick in the designated fields.
- Please do not eat any berries in the fields for health and safety reasons.
- Once you have filled your bucket, please exit through our "Exit Tent" and put your berries in your vehicle. You may then return to the farm to visit the Farm Market, Ice Cream Shoppe and picnic area!
Before eating any fruit, it should be washed under cold water. Pat dry with a towel and enjoy!
Raspberries are delicious eaten frozen too! They are very refreshing and a good snack as they are super-healthy for you. Raspberries are low in calories and are a rich source of dietary fiber and antioxidants.
If you want to freeze them, rinse with cold water and lay them out on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Put them in a freezer for a couple hours, then shake into a ziplock bag and they will freeze individually.
