The people have spoken and Krause Berry Farms has won as the favourite local U-pick farm.

The contest was part of the We Heart Local Awards, which was designed to recognize and elevate all of the farmers, businesses, orchards, chefs, wineries and all involved in the local food industry across the province.

Altogether, 10,395 votes were cast amongst the 238 nominees. The voting took place between June 24 and Aug. 6.

People could also leave comments about why they voted a certain way.

“I love the fact that Krause started out as a little local farm that I can remember going to as a little girl to pick berries and now I go with my children. They have great berries, a lovely new winery, good food and local produce and it’s very family-friendly,” it said online.

Langley’s Driediger Farms was the first runner-up.

In the category of Favourite Local Seafood Supplier, Langley’s 1 Fish 2 Fish Fresh Seafood Market was the first runner-up.

And Langley Community Farmers Market was the second runner-up in the voting for Favourite B.C. Farmers Market.
