Pine Meadows Tree Farm
What do Christmas tree growers do for the other 11 months of the year? At this family-owned and operated tree farm, you’ll learn what it takes to grow trees that can light up a room.
Lunch: Cultivate Café
Restaurant owners Cam and Peggy Walker have their roots in Chilliwack and their café in Minter Country Gardens. This is the lunch stop on this year’s tour; you’ll be able to order from a menu designed especially for the Best of the Fraser Valley Tour.
Minter Country Gardens
This isn’t your grandpa’s country store! Learn how this fixture in the community moved with the times to meet the needs of gardeners in 2019. Naturally, there’ll be time to browse and shop.
During your visit to Woodbridge Ponds, you’ll tour the gardens and have an opportunity to feed the koi while learning some tricks for keeping these fish happy and safe. You’ll also be able to enjoy a glass of wine from the on-site Ripples Winery while strolling through the display of water lilies and pond plants at this diverse Abbotsford nursery.
Do you remember Sunday afternoon drives when you were a kid, with the promise of an ice cream cone if you were good? We’ll see if Birchwood’s ice cream lives up to your memories; you’d better behave if you want a double-scoop waffle cone from this family-run dairy!
