Join us for the 12th Annual DAY AT THE FARM!
Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust (DF&WT) is arranging the 12th Annual “Day at the Farm” community event to be held on September 9th, 2017. 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 Tracy Neff!
- 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 Dairy Association Mobile Dairy Classroom
- BC Agriculture in the Classroom and student chefs preparing local fare
- Wildlife Conservation on Farmland
- AND MUCH MORE!!
* Homemade Food Contest: Don’t forget to enter your best signature dish using local ingredients for a chance to win a Vinca’s Kitchen gift basket. 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. There are no limitations on type of dish i.e. sweet or savoury, however, we do not have the capabilities to reheat the dishes prior to tasting.
We cannot wait to see what you’ll create with Delta’s bounty!
