  • 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.

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.

As this is a working farm, please leave your dogs at home.
