Welcome to the Fraser Valley

The Fraser Valley is located along the Fraser River in the southwest corner of the province of British Columbia, nestled between the beautiful Coast and Cascade Mountains. The region sits just north of the Canada/USA border and includes the communities of Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, Agassiz, Harrison and Hope. Just a short drive west is Vancouver, Canada's third largest city, located on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Unlike most of Canada the Fraser Valley enjoys mild winters, with very little snow and warm, sunny summers.

 

The Fraser Valley is home to British Columbia's most fertile farmland and the landscape is dotted with dairy barns, greenhouses and fruit and vegetable farms. With fertile soil, a favourable climate and plenty of access to water, The Fraser Valley is home to some of Canada's most productive farms.
