Armstrong is the hub of a flourishing agricultural region. Experience its countryside, get a closer look at farm life and techniques, and simply taste farm fresh food.

The surrounding mountain ridges and eco reserve provide a counterpoint of healthy hiking trails. People come to the Armstrong Spallumcheen district to visit farms and orchards, take circle drives through lush farm country, attend unusual farm-centred theatre productions and shop for country wares and antiques.

Drive in any direction from downtown Armstrong and it's two minutes to farm country. Stop by Wild Mountain Honey Farm and buy orchard-sweet honey, pick fresh apples from the tree at Maw's Orchard, find ripe tomatoes and cucumbers year round and pay on the honour system at Kristensen Greenhouse.

From April through October, the country comes to town at the Armstrong Farmers' Market where vendors proudly explain how they "make it, bake it or grow it."
