Farms & Markets
Granville Island Market, Vancouver (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Farms and markets have been a part of rural British Columbia life for more than 100 years.
Whether it’s the Fraser Valley, Thompson Okanagan region, or Vancouver Island, many farms welcome visitors for tours and demonstrations. Purchase fresh fruit and produce, just-collected free-range eggs, delicious cheese and milk, and much more.
Touring some of BC's best farms can provide a rather tasty education. It’s a chance to learn about organic farming and other sustainable farming practices – and taste a few samples! The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region has self-guided Circle Farm Tours to follow.
British Columbia also hosts farmers markets in many communities. Most farmers markets take place on weekends from spring through fall, but some places also have winter markets. Markets enable shoppers to meet the farmers and artisans who grew, raised, caught or produced the food for sale. Enjoy this tempting opportunity to taste a bounty of farm-fresh local foods and to browse and buy locally made arts and crafts.

Camelot Vineyards began as an orchard & was owned & operated by Ruth & the late Robert Young Senior for almost 40 years. In 1996, keeping it in the family, Robert Young Jr. & his wife Denise, decided to take over the business. Exactly 10 years later in October 2006, a huge decision was made to remove all of the trees & replant the acreage with a vineyard. Following this, Camelot Winery was erected.

The Crazy Cow Kids Corral is a farm, with kids in mind. Check out activities such as the corn barn and bury yourself in corn or milk "Betsy" the cow and climb up the treehouse and slide out.
Ride a John Deere trike and play for hours in the giant sandbox or challenge each other to a duck race using old fashioned water pumps to propel your duck down the water trough. Kids will also love our maze and driving the old truck.
Great fun for kids ages 2-10 years.

In 1989, the 'Farm-gate Winery' license was created. This allowed small growers to start their own operations. Lang Vineyards was the first to receive such a license & opened in Spring 1990. The small but superbly equiped winery has since grown well beyond the farm winery concept.
The winery has enjoyed success with Riesling, ice-wines & a dessert wine called "The Original Canadian Maple Wine". The only hybrid varietal remaining is the Marechal Foch, which is also one of Lang's most popular wines.
Come enjoy the view & taste our award-winning wines!
