Are you wondering about Farm Experiences and U-Pick activities?
Most of your favourite family farms are OPEN for business during the COVID-19 Pandemic, and they are excited to welcome you, feed you, share agri-learning and agri-toursim experiences with you!
Things may look a little different, though, as each of the farms navigates the restrictions and orders required of them, and of you, their patrons–in order to keep visitors, workers, and farming families in good health.
Please be kind, and do your best to follow the guidelines at each BC Farm Fresh location. If you have questions or concerns about how something is being handled on the farm you’ve visited, we ask that you respectfully approach the farmers to share these thoughts, keeping in mind that the situation is new and difficult for all involved.
To find out what the BC Government is asking U-Pick Operations to do in order to keep you, and the farming families and their workers safe and healthy, you can read the BC Ministry of Agriculture Bulletin located here.
The Farm Fresh Reference Guide is produced by the Fraser Valley Farm Direct Marketing Association in cooperation with the BC Ministry of Agriculture.
