Take a look inside a fully operational dairy farm and explore the interactive exhibits. Science World and the Eco-Dairy partnered this past year to give families even more to do, touch, and watch in Abbotsford.
Opened in 1906 by Thomas and Eliza Kilby and then taken over by their son, Acton, in 1922, the store and adjoining farm remains a living monument to the 1920's. Walk through the aisles, look through the cases, and marvel at the antiques and novelties that line the walls.
True foodies and chefs love to experiment with their own ingredients. The big chain supermarkets sometimes fails to inspire, so here are a few stops on the Maple Ridge / Pitt Meadows Circle Farm Tour that will make you remember why you love to cook with local food!
Plan to spend an entire day at Maan Farms and the kids are sure to fall asleep on the drive home. What began as a family fruit stand has expanded into an adventure playground and winery, sure to entertain the entire family!
