Join us for the 14th Annual DAY AT THE FARM!
Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust (DF&WT) is arranging the 14th Annual “Day at the Farm” community event to be held on September 7th, 2019. 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 Local Music Talent Show
- Live Mini-Auction
- Homemade Food Contest*
- BC Fresh Potato Dig
- Vancouver Food Trucks featuring Delta ingredients!
- Antique Tractors and Farm Equipment
- BC Chicken Growers’ Association’s Poultry In Motion replica of a broiler chicken farm
- BC Agriculture in the Classroom and student chefs preparing local fare
- Wildlife Conservation on Farmland
- AND MUCH MORE!!
*Pie and Jam Contest: Don't forget to enter your best homemade pie and/or jam using local ingredients for a chance to win gift baskets from Vinca’s Kitchen for the winner of the pie contest and BC Strawberry Council for the winner of the jam contest. Contest judging will include a professional chef, and starts at 1 pm! Please drop off your dishes by noon beside the stage area.
Additional notes: We do not need the actual recipe however we do need your name, phone number, and dish name listing the local products used in the recipe. Chef Trevor Randle of BC Ag in the Classroom will be our judge and there is no cost to enter the contest.
