The Pass Creek Regional Exhibition Society is Proud to Announce
our 4th Annual Spring Farm Fair

on May 6, 2017, 11AM – 4PM

Pass Creek Regional Exhibition Grounds, Robson, BC

What is the Spring Farm Fair All About?

Bringing farmers, ranchers, public and vendors together who raise all different types of livestock, fruit trees, nurseries, poultry, grape vines, nuts, herbs, bees etc. Inviting farming businesses to attend and support farmers offering information on merchandise available and information on how it would impact their farm and improve their operation. Inviting the public to attend and have the option of purchasing items farmer direct and the ability to purchase from their local farmer in the future. Offering consumers the knowledge of what food they consume and how it’s handled, produced and processed.

The most important assets of this event is…

  • to pass on firsthand knowledge
  • to provide the opportunity to purchase farm animals & equipment
  • to gather farmers in person to meet, talk and share
  • to provide the public with that much needed information:
  • where can I find what locally?

Farmers

Attending farmers from the East & West Kootenays, Boundary and South Okanagan have the opportunity to sell their different types of livestock, crops, fruit trees, poultry, etc. while sharing their knowledge. They may share their expertise with new farmers or potential new farmers. To find a local farmer that can speak from experience and share their knowledge is priceless. Perhaps new farmers may even find a mentor who will teach them so they can eventually pass on knowledge to the next generation of farmers.

Vendors

Attending Farm Vendors can and display their products from the farm like soap, live baby chicks, honey, canning, weaving, eggs, garlic, vegetable seeds, bedding plants, grape vines, nuts, herbs, bees etc. There will be a specific indoor area for these vendors to set up their products on provided tables.

Rates

  • Non-Commercial – $10
  • Commercial – $50

Farming Businesses

Attending Farming Businesses will be there to support farmers in merchandise, equipment and farming expertise. They will provide info on what they carry, what can be ordered and provide farmers with one to one consultation to meet the farmers individual needs.
