Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust (DF&WT) is arranging our annual “Day at the Farm” community event to be held on September 10th, 2016. This is one of the most exciting agricultural fairs in the Lower Mainland because it provides visitors the opportunity to connect with real farms, real farmers, and real food. The event takes place at Westham Island Herb Farm.

 Our goal is to help educate our communities about the nature and importance of agriculture and non-market environmental services that it provides.  The event will feature the very popular hay-wagon farm tours (led by 3rd generation farmer Gordon Ellis), as well as:

 

  • Live Cash and Carter Tribute Show starring Tony Barton and Tracey Neff!
  • Live Mini-Auction
  • Homemade Scone Contest*
  • BC Fresh Potato Dig
  • Vancouver Food Trucks featuring Delta ingredients!
  • Antique Tractors and Farm Equipment
  • BC Dairy Association Mobile Dairy Classroom
  • BC Agriculture in the Classroom and student chefs preparing local fare
  • Wildlife Conservation on Farmland
  • AND MUCH MORE!!

 

* Homemade Scone Contest: Bring a batch of home-made muffins using local produce and enter the contest. Awards for the tastiest scones! Contest is judged by a professional chef and starts at the Show Stage at NOON!

BRING A NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEM TO DONATE TO THE FOOD BANK! FARM CREDIT CANADA STAFF WILL BE ON SITE TO COLLECT!
