The Asparagus Festival is back by popular demand! To the great disappointment of our customers, we were forced to cancel our asparagus festivals for a few years due to a lack of production stemming from hail storms in 2014. We are thrilled to announce that our new asparagus patch is now up & producing at full steam! Our Asparagus Festival is a fun filled day packed with memorable experiences geared toward the entire family. Visit our real working asparagus farm, experience first-hand our asparagus story on our fully narrated fun wagon ride to the field and watch harvesting in action. Lots of opportunities to savour freshly picked delicious asparagus at our field. Enjoy lunch at our local food truck. Shop at our Country Store for freshly picked asparagus and other produce, handmade preserves & pies, ferments, our all natural beef, & more (bring a cooler). Don’t miss our Artisan Market Village for shopping galore. Visit our farm animals, enjoy playing in our bale maze, face painting, many other fun kids’ activities and lots more!
