When: Saturday, September 7, 2019 10:00am to 4:00pm

The goal of the event 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 (pies and jams)
  • 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

DF&WT is a non-profit organization that promotes the annual preservation of over 3,500 ares of farmland and wildlife habitat on the lower Fraser River delta through co-operative land stewardship with local farmers.
