What is the history behind Beckmann Berry Farms? What’s your story?
Beckmann Berry Farms are the most famous farms in the Fraser Valley region For huge and juicy berries. We have been serving our customers for more than 30 years. We have freshwater streams running underneath the roots of the Blueberries, which allows
abundant water supply for the plants. Moreover, this helps in making our berries very juicy and tasty. Our berries are not sprayed.
Favorite berry to grow / enjoy, and why?
Chandler blueberries are our favorite berry to grow and enjoy. Chandlers are generally very huge berries (about the size of toonie). Very demanding variety at the markets. Not the least, this variety is mostly enjoyed by the pickers and the customers.
What differentiates Beckmann berries from all of the others?
Beckmann Berries are non-sprayed and the sweetest berries in the region. None of the farms nearby have such a big size and tasty berries. People far away from Merit and UBC order around 200-300 lbs. from us. Every customer is satisfied from us and we have had the same customers for the past 30 years.
What do you enjoy the most about selling at farmers markets?
The most enjoyable is to see our customers coming back and forth to us since years and years and with happy smiles. Additionally, we enjoy fulfilling our customers expectations from us.

Canada is our mother country and it is our pleasure to serve our nation. Growing and selling local helps us to expand our business in the region around us. This also helps us to satisfy our neighborhood.
