Safeway Farm Country
Please celebrate with us at the 2014 Fair at the PNE, August 16 to September 1 (closed Monday, August 18 and 25).
For a break from the hustle and bustle of the midway, stop by Safeway Farm Country
and relax into a showcase of BC Agriculture! Many old favourites are returning
to the Big Red Barns for the 2013 Fair and we are working on some exciting new
exhibits to entertain and educate about all that Agriculture has to offer!
Fantastic One of a kind Exhibits:
We have a large variety of agriculture exhibits including all types of farm animals from cute baby chicks to all kinds of beautiful horses. Returning favourites include The horse stables, Tractor Alley, and the popular Kids Discovery Farm! While you are with us, visit the Country and Honey Stores, where lots of local BC products will be featured once again.
The largest variety of barn animals found in Vancouver:
The PNE brings it all to you! Visitors can see and interact with so many different types of animals it will make your head spin! Llamas, alpacas, rabbits, horses (big and small), cows of all varieties, chickens, ducks, fancy birds, sheep, pigs (with piglets!), goats and more! The best way to experience and learn about all these wonderful animals is by catching our friendly and knowledgeable Farm Hand demonstrations as they educate you about all the different animals!
Returning "Agriculture in the City" exhibit:
Come by the barn and learn about how you can incorporate Urban Agriculture into your own lifestyle! This exhibit began in 2011 and will return in 2013 to educate the public about various components of Urban Agriculture including: Backyard Bees, Backyard Chickens, Community Gardening, and Composting! Come and learn all sorts of ways you can produce your own food in the city and reduce your environmental footprint by recycling your food scraps!
Tons of barn fun for the kids!
Kids can try their hand at becoming a 'farmer for an hour' in the Kids Discovery Farm, showcasing 10 sectors of agriculture with different interactive activities! Try your hand at milking a cow, pedaling a tractor, collecting eggs and harvesting apples in this exciting exhibit! Since its premier in 2009, this fun-filled activity has received rave reviews and continues to be even better this year!
Come and learn about the lifecycle of a chicken at the Poultry in Motion Educational Mini Barn and check out the Honey Bee Exhibit and Store with daily honey extraction demonstrations, weekend Bee Beard shows, live wasp displays and an opportunity to buy amazing BC honey! You can also stop by to watch a dairy milking demonstration and maybe even bottle feed a baby calf! Come check out the different types of birds in Poultry Alley and learn about raising backyard chickens in Vancouver! And certainly last but not least Richard’s Racers are returning to Safeway Farm Country to carry on their long standing tradition! We hope you will watch a show and cheer the piggies on!
