Our farm specializes in blueberries. We feature six varieties of blueberries available in late June to mid-August (subject to the influences of Mother Nature). There are no sprays on our berries as lady bugs are used for pest control. Both U-Pick and ready-picked berries are available.
Please call ahead to ensure that we are open, especially when it's wet and rainy. The answering machine (250-652-6768) is updated daily.
To avoid disappointment, don't forget to place an order for picked berries at 250-652-6768.

A few things to note
Park your vehicle on the east side of the road, securely off the road.
Remember your containers.
The most popular containers for picking berries are ice cream pails.
Choose plump, full blueberries that are gray-blue color.
A berry with any hint of red or green isn't fully ripened and once picked, blueberries won't ripen any further.
Bring the kids but leave the family pet at home.
Our farm is complete with our own farm animals. Our Muscovy ducks and ducklings are indifferent to our dogs, so they wouldn't know if they should be afraid of your pet.
Remember to eat before you come.
Our berries are tempting to eat and no doubt are sampled while in the field. All berries should be picked, paid for and then eaten.
Don't forget the cash.
As a seasonal operation, it's cash and carry at our farm. The closest bank machine is located in the Peninsula Co-op on Keating Cross Road.
Come early and beat the heat.
We start the day early and end around noon. It's much easier to pick early morning when it's cooler. This leaves the afternoon free to make jam and jelly or freeze the berries.
