U-pick Soda Creek Sweet Corn makes a fun day trip

A trip to Soda Creek to pick your own corn fresh off the cob is just one of many fun day trips to enjoy this Labour Day weekend.

A trip to Soda Creek to pick your own corn fresh off the cob is just one of many fun outings families and individuals can enjoy in the region this Labour Day weekend.

Soda Creek Sweet Corn will be open for picking your own corn and other fresh vegetables, right through the Labour Day weekend, from 9 a.m. until dusk.

In addition to their famous sweet corn, the Soda Creek Sweet Corn u-pick vegetable garden includes herbs such as rosemary and basil, squash, zucchini, kale, Swiss Chard, peppers, beans, peas, cucumbers and tomatoes. The potatoes and carrots have mostly been picked at this point, the owners say.

Soda Creek Sweet Corn is also now available in Williams Lake at Beaver Valley Feeds, Margetts Meats and Canada Safeway.

Soda Creek Sweet Corn was launched in the 1980s when Ron Kaufman came home from studying agriculture at the University of British Columbia and realized that the Soda Creek area was in its own micro-climate that was ideal for the production of corn.

The farm located at the Dunlevy Ranch at 4842 Soda Creek-Macalister Road will be open for picking your own corn and vegetables seven days a week right through until the first frost which the owners are hoping is still two weeks away.

The farm is open for picking from 9 am. until dusk which these days comes about 7:30 p.m. Melons are also available which are being picked for visitors.
