Harvest Fair at Stewart Farm

Olde Harvest Fair to be held on Sept. 21 at South Surrey farm

• Dance the day away to the upbeat melodies of the Central Fraser Valley Fiddlers.

• Take part in traditional harvest festival games and activities, including potato sack races, “Scarecrow Relay,” and corn-husking competitions for prizes and bragging rights.

• Try harvest-themed crafts like vegetable stamping, enjoy story time with Leslee from the Ocean Park Library, and have your face painted.

• Watch cider press and butter-making demonstrations, and sample applesauce cooked on the woodburning stove.

• Visit with live heritage-breed chickens from True North Heritage Hatchery, http://truenorthfarm.ca/

• In the spirit of the community harvest, bring a non-perishable food donation for the Surrey Food Bank.
