When I married a nice Midwest man from Iowa I had no idea that with that union, I would soon begin to learn many things about corn. From the late summer aroma of sweet corn to processes like detasseling. While his Iowa corn is grand, I still love our fresh Fraser Valley corn and thanks to Maan Farms, there’s an entire weekend dedicated to this beautiful golden crop right in our backyard.
Maan Farms August CornFest
The 2013 Maan Farms August CornFest will take place Saturday, August 24th and Sunday, August 25th during their weekend hours of 9:00am until 7:00pm.

The Estate Winery will also offer tastings of Maan Farms’ strawberry and raspberry blends. If you are 19+ you can RSVP to the official CornFest invitation to enjoy a free wine tasting.
Get access to the labyrinth, petting zoo, play area, and a bag of homemade popcorn for $8.
