The rich soil and abundant sunshine of British Columbia’s Fraser Valley provides the ideal conditions to produce the world’s finest berries. At South Alder Farms, we make the most of these ideal growing conditions. We start with the finest berry varieties and combine our decades of experience, modern technology, and proven agricultural practices to bring out the very best in the fruit. Once berries are harvested from mid-June to November, only the juiciest, firmest, and richest colored berries are selected for the fresh market. Special environmentally friendly packaging and state-of-the-art cooling gives our berries added shelf life so they arrive fresh and bursting with flavor.
