Located on the edge of the city of Langley is Krause Berry Farms. Its been a family attraction for years featuring its berries and numerous berry products They make jams, pies and icecream along with other related products

It started small when Alf Krause planted 1 acre of strawberries back in 1974.  Today, Krause Berry Farms & Estate Winery has expanded to over 200 acres, growing and producing some of the Fraser Valley's best berries and vegetables.  Owned and operated by Alf & Sandee Krause, their commitment to ethical and sustainable farming has resulted in loyal guests spreading the word and returning year after year.

We focus on viability, while at the same time commit to the values of justice and caring. We respect our staff and our guests because it is through their support we are able to continue farming and producing local food.

"Growing is what I love "

Sandee Krause -owner

I am equally passionate about the crops we grow, the products we produce in our harvest Kitchen and the wonderfully talanted staff who contribute to our beautiful farm and Estate Winery

The Krause Berry Farms Estate Winery is a modern facility, one that can easily can produce 10,000 cases of table, dessert, and sparkling wines per year. Sandra Lee Harcourt is the winemaker. The young winery has already added awards to their portfolio . The Sparking Strawberry won at Finger Lakes in NY

There is a wide selection of good wines made from Krause's own farm grown berries. We current have a very good Rasberry dessert wine and a Blackberry Portoe in our cellar. The Portoe is double-fermented rather than fortified, giving the port a smoother finish.

Additional features include Children's play area, a small petting zoo, food service from Cookies Kitchen and entertainment. Tractor train rides are offered in the summer. My wife and I have been three times and we still haven't seen it all.
Krause Berry Farm is a wonderful place to take the family. It will also become a wine destination!
