Rich Agricultural Land
Maple Ridge boasts some of the richest agricultural land in Canada, generating substantial value from blueberries, dairy, nurseries and greenhouses. Maple Ridge has many opportunities—from small start-up farms to larger operations—and we are committed to maintaining our agricultural roots by growing our agri-food opportunities.
Agriculture has been an economic driver in Maple Ridge for decades. Since the late 1800’s, generations have been harvesting the bounty of our rich land. Maple Ridge ranks high among British Columbia’s municipalities in terms of agricultural production value and our total land area in the Agricultural Land Reserve is 3,782 hectares or approximately 15% of Maple Ridge's total area.
