What a crazy, exciting whirlwind this past week has been. One of our customers compared it to those overnight home improvement reality shows but on a much bigger scale. Our official reopening day was yesterday May 29th, which co-incidentally this year was also the kick off for our u-pick strawberry season. We actually had people lined up to pick before we even opened this morning.
You may have heard all the talk about early Fraser Valley Strawberries, including our interview with CBC news. Though berries were early we are still selling out at the farmers markets there is so much demand right now! You guys really do love our strawberries;) If you can’t wait try our pre-order program online and we will hold them here for you.
So we are officially open in the store and across the street for u-pick strawberries. The petting zoo & bouncy pillow are open 9-6 everyday and the newest attractions will launch later next week as construction completes and the last few parts arrive. We’ve told you all about the cool new attractions including latest surprise addition – a giant wooden playhouse with gangplanks & funky windows right beside the huge bubble jump inflatable pillow!
The store is carrying many new local additions this year, and will be rolling out new ones every month as we source out local vendors, artisans and more.
The animals arrived on Thursday and are nestling into their new homes quite nicely. The last 2 to arrive will be the Llamas tomorrow morning. This year we have 2 baby potbelly piglets, 2 crazy looking ducks, a mommy and baby goats, two multi colored lambs all joining our existing animals that stayed with us throughout the winter our pony, rabbits, turkey, peacocks & pidgeons.
Our winery also continues to expand and launches 3 new red grape wines next month. We are also super excited about the launch of our brand new VIP Wine Club. More information on both available in store or on our website over coming weeks.
We look forward to seeing you back at our farm and to sharing all this excitement with you!
