Bring the whole family out for a Day at the Farm! This unique agricultural fair, nestled in the heart of scenic Westham Island, Delta (a mere 35 km from Vancouver) is situated on a working farm.
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.
The goal is to help educate 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 Dairy Association Mobile Dairy Classroom
- BC Agriculture in the Classroom and student chefs preparing local fare
- Wildlife Conservation on Farmland
- AND MUCH MORE!!
*Bread and Jam Contest: Don’t forget to enter your best homemade loaf of bread and/or jam using local ingredients for a chance to win gift baskets from Vinca’s Kitchen for the winner of the bread contest and Emma Lea Farms 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.
