Did you know?

Everyone loves to meet the big guys & gals!

A draft horse can pull 3 – 5 times their own body weight.  Horses of their size are not often seen in the area which makes them very popular with our guests.  They can be seen in the springtime helping us prepare the fields for planting.  It is excellent excercise for them along with much needed weight bearing work that keeps their joints healthy, muscles well toned and bone density strong.  These are all crucial health elements of draft horses due to their extreme weight.

 

INTERNATIONAL BEER DAY!

Did you know that August 5th is International Beer Day? Well it is, and that makes it this coming Sunday. It was started in 2007 by a group of friends.

Check out their site at http://www.internationalbeerday.com/about/

Our Day Off!

Fourteen lovely ladies decided to get together for a day of wonderful wines, great food and lots of laughs! When they arrived at Township 7 Winery in Langley it was clear they were having a terrific time. Their buffet style picnic lunch was set-up in the vineyard waiting for them to enjoy. One of the ladies said it was so nice to have a “Day Off From Our….Vacation!” They are all teachers from South Surrey. What a great way to keep in contact over the summer holidays.

Wonderful Day for a Wine Tour

July 10, 2012  What better way to celebrate a Birthday!  Our group of 8 spent the day touring the Fraser Valley wineries with lots of wine tasting and a great picnic lunch in the vineyards.  Their day started in Delta at Wellbrook Winery where not only do they make great wines, they also make excellent fruit juices. Lunch was served buffet style at Township 7 Winery along with a glass or 2 of their favorite wine.  One of the guests had brought a lovely cake for the occasion, and it was truly delicious!  Their tour concluded at Domaine de Chaberton which gives a great tour of the facility and again has fabulous wines.  A great day was had by all, for sure a birthday celebration to remember.
