It was back to Krause Berry Farm last Sunday for the annual FarmFolk CityFolk’s, Metro Vancouver Feast of Fields, this was my 4th Feast of Fields and the 2nd time I have attended one at this farm. It was a beautiful day with passionate people out to enjoy an afternoon of eating, drinking and listening to music!
Each Feast of Fields over the years has been a wonderful experience and each has been slightly different, this year I noticed many of the restaurants involved were ones that had opened in the past year and were either offering vegetarian fare or fare that was a bit out of the ordinary for this type of festival.
Here are some of the many dishes that I enjoyed at this year’s feast,
One of my favourite desserts was the Road Trip Bars from Gretchen’s Here and Now, followed by the Strawberry Lime Sorbet from Bella Gelateria, S’mores from Terra Breads and the Strawberry Cheese Pockets from Cadeaux Bakery.
Krause Berry Farms started as a small 1-acre farm in 1947 and today has expanded to over 200 acres growing some of the Fraser Valley’s best berries and vegetables. Krause also produces a delectable selection of farm fresh baked goods including their famous berry pies, and this year they’re celebrating the opening of their own on-farm estate winery.
I am already looking forward to attending next year’s event.
