History

The Surrey Berry Growers' Cooperative Association was a group of mostly Japanese-Canadian berry farmers in Surrey, BC. It was one of the first berry cooperatives in the Surrey area. The Surrey Berry Growers' Cooperative produced Sovereign Brand strawberries and jam berries. The Cooperative had 5 acres of land and Sandell Road by Townline Road, RR 4, New Westminster, British Columbia. It also had a recreation hall and caretaker's residence on the property. The Cooperative was successful throughout the Great Depression despite the failures of many other agricultural ventures during that time period. In 1942, many of the farmers in the Cooperative were interned due to being of Japanese decent and had their land and possessions taken from them. The Cooperative also had their land and property ceased at this time. While there were attempts made to regain the property and re-establish the Cooperative, the Cooperative died out sometime after 1952.
