Join us for a farm tour and potluck at Grassy Gnome Acres in Coldstream, BC! We’ll get to check out their pasture raised and organic sheep, pigs, turkey, and chicken operation. Our farm tour and potlucks are a great way to connect with other farmers, gardeners, and farm curious folks of all ages!
Please bring a dish to share at the potluck and your own beverage, plate and cutlery.
WHEN: Sunday September 17th, 2017 – 3:30pm-7:30pm.
- Farm tour starts at 3:30pm
- Potluck begins at 5:00pm (held under cover in case of rain)
The turkeys and meat chickens have already left the farm to be butchered for this season, but on the farm tour we will still learn about their housing. We’ll tour the sheep, pigs, and laying hens – bring your questions! You can learn all about raising organic meats on pasture.
About Grassy Gnome Acres:
In 2008, Lorna and Chris started farming pasture raised, organically fed pork and certified organic chickens and turkeys. They market their products through their extended family’s company – Vale Farms Grassroots Ltd.
Lorna and Chris would love for people to be more connected to where their food comes from and what it means to be a farmer. Come out to the farm and learn more about it all!
