You’re invited to an outdoor Land Social and Farm Tour at Pilgrims’ Produce – with local live musicians Root and Strings – in Armstrong, 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 and enjoy some live music, join us for the event.
Pilgrims’ Produce is a certified organic farm featuring fruit and nut orchards and 7 acres in market garden veggies – there’s lots to see here! The farm celebrated 30 years in 2021, and last year saw the land and farm transition from the founding farmers Robert and Kathryn Hettler to new operators, Dan and Kat Saxton.
We’ll tour the farm, network, and look at the steps to building a successful land sharing relationship. Your regional Land Matcher will share information about how the B.C. Land Matching Program can help you find the perfect farmer for your land – or farmland where you can build your dream farm business. And then we will share delicious food and enjoy a live music by Roots and Strings!
Land Socials connect farmers and farmland holders, and set them up to receive ongoing support through the B.C. Land Matching Program. Both farmers seeking land and farmland holders thinking about sharing land are encouraged to attend – as well as anyone who loves food, farming, and getting out onto the land.
