Growing Farm Fresh Produce Since 1992
Ralph and Elizabeth Merk, founders of Ralph’s Farm Market have been growing farm fresh produce and connecting the Fraser Valley to Okanagan produce since 1982. Our passion came through the dream of a family farm which has provided our community with many different fruit and vegetables over the decades. We currently grow and harvest about 6 acres of scrumptious blueberries. Over the years Ralph and his family have grown potatoes, zucchini, green beans, pumpkins, corn, squash, lettuce, pickling cucumbers and more. You can find our farm fresh produce at Ralph’s Farm Market on Fraser Highway in Langley just beside our fields.
Who We Are
The year was 1989 when our family purchased a farm in Langley, BC. This 20-acre farm had originally been a 1940s dairy farm. When our family first moved onto the farm, the soil needed a lot of plowing and cultivating as it wasn’t a farm in production at that time.
Working With Us
Every season, we hire Blueberry Pickers for our family farm to help with the harvest. This agricultural position is seasonal between the months of late June through to early August.
Ralph has nurtured our plants over the years and since 2018 we have been harvesting farm fresh blueberries. Enjoy juicy and sweet Bluecrop blueberries, as well as firm and mildly tart Duke blueberries.
We grow Duke and Bluecrop varieties here on our Blueberry Farm in Langley. Enjoy as a fresh snack, freeze to enjoy year ’round or encorporate in your next recipe in the kitchen!
