Farm Tour and Potluck at Big Rock Ranch

August 17 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

You’re invited to a Farm Tour and Potluck at Big Rock Ranch in Buffalo Creek, B.C. If you’re curious about what land matching and sharing is all about – or just want to check out what your local farmers are up to – join us for the event. Come out to connect with other farmers and food lovers, share a meal, and learn about mixed fruit and vegetable production, beekeeping and raising poultry.

We’ll enjoy a farm tour from farmer Robin Hunt, who farms on their family’s 148-acre ranch alongside their grandmother, mother and a crew of working and companion animals. We will learn about their mission to grow nutrient-dense food, enhance soil health and biodiversity and maintain landscape integrity. Touring Big Rock Ranch’s mixed vegetable and fruit crops, we will also learn about their innovative irrigation practices and how they extend their growing season using greenhouses. They farm in a high elevation community that only has 80 frost free days a year, so season extension is an important part of their farm’s sustainability. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions about land sharing, collaboration and farming in their Cariboo climate! If you are a new or experienced farmer who is interested in family farm transition and want to understand what that looks like in practice, we hope to see you there. The day will wrap up with a shared potluck meal and informal time to socialize with other farmers and farm-curious folks.
