Silverside Berries

Silverside Farm BlueberriesThe pride of Silverside Farm is our blueberries and we’re famous for them!  We’re well known for our big, sweet and super flavourful berries – no sugar needed!

Our berry bushes have been around since 1988, so they’re now over 30 years old.  The berries are composed of blue crop and patriot varietals.  We take care in working the bushes and it shows – they continue to produce thousands of pounds of fresh blueberries for us each year.  We do our best to do things as naturally as we can here at Silverside as well.  We do not use chemicals in our production.

Blueberries for You!

Harvested for You

Of course we don’t grow thousands of pounds of plump, juicy and tasty berries to keep to ourselves – we want everyone to enjoy them.  Our fresh berries are ready to pick in July and August and sell fresh all summer by the box: 2.5 pounds ($9.00), 5 pounds ($19.50) or 10 pounds ($35.00) – and if you want more than that you certainly can, you’ll just get them in boxes of 10 pounds. Fresh orders for 2018 season start May 1st.

Outside of summertime but still want tasty blueberries?  We’ve got you covered!  We have 10 pound boxes of frozen berries available year-round for $25.  You can order directly from our Cobble Hill farm, or you can order through Cow-Op.ca and pick them up weekly in either Victoria or Duncan.  You can learn all about the Cow-Op on their website for how to participate.

You-Pick

Silverside Farm BerriesIf you love your berries and want to make an excursion out of getting them we can help make that happen.  During the summer we also offer you-pick for $2.50/pound.  Bring your buckets – and maybe a picnic basket too!  We’re happy to have you make an afternoon of it and enjoy the great outdoors with the family.  Don’t hesitate to bring along lunch!  We have many places where you can spread out your blanket and enjoy a great time of picking berries and eating lunch out on the farm.  We’ve even got you covered for dessert – you can drop by our store that’s open during the summer and enjoy our famous frozen yogurt or some ice cream.
