Happy Birthday Canada!

June 29, 2017

It's going to be an awesome summer in Harrison Hot Springs, From events, festivals, self-guided tours, and so much more, you'll be left with the question of where to start! Upload this post into your calendar and pace yourself for weekends of fun! 

Self Guided Circle Farm Tour
 

A celebration of past and present, this tour is a rich mix of wonderful things to see, do, smell, and taste! See cows roaming the fields, watch artisan cheese and hand-crafted pottery in the making. Take a self-guided tour of a 1920's living history historic site, explore a garden and shop for antiques and home & garden décor. Smell fresh coffee being roasted and taste homemade dishes with locally-sourced products, heirloom tomatoes, garlic, corn, cheese, raspberries, blueberries, and fresh veggies. Don't forget about the Harrison River Select salmon treats!

Here is a sample of what you can find year-round!
 

NOTHING CORNY ABOUT IT
As of August (as soon as it's ready), you must try Sparkes Corn Barn for sweet corn!

BUT FIRST...COFFEE
How far can you go without a refuel? Stop by Back Porch Coffee for coffee, antiques, pottery, and more!

SUSTAINABLE SAMPLING
River Select Salmon is carefully harvested with the future in mind so that we can enjoy for many seasons!

PEDAL ...THEN POOL
 Stay and soak in one of the hot spring pools or enjoy the healing springs spa.

Agassiz Farms Cycle Tour July 22

Tourism Harrison, Prospera Credit Union, and our farmers welcome you to another year of exploring the countryside.  The Agassiz Farms Cycle Tour is a leisurely, one-day self-guided cycle tour, centred around a 30-km flat route. 

Bags too heavy for biking? A shuttle service has been provided, which will collect your purchases and bring them back to the registration area for pick-up. We encourage a stop and shop at the many local artisan booths along the way. That's right, we are talking Christmas shopping in July! 

Stop by UBC’S Dairy Education and Research Centre and find out why cows can thrive eating forages, whereas humans cannot? Do they prefer to live indoors or outdoors? So many great questions, to be answered.

Follow on Facebook for updated announcements. 

Here is a sneak peak of what you will see on July 22nd!

THE BERRY BEST!
Hammersley Farms specializes in spray-free blueberries and raspberries. Flop on a sun hat and
u-pick away!

CHEESEY DOES IT
Why does a happy cow matter? Pasture-fed cows and goats make delicious cheese.
Just stop and ask at Farmhouse Natural Cheeses!
