The ‘berry days’ of summer are here!
With the announcement of BC’s next step in our safe restart plan allowing for provincial-wide travel as of today, we’re all feeling a little lighter and a little sweeter.
How about some delicious seasonal sweet treats to mark the occasion?
Maan Farms is serving up summer with their Strawberry Days beginning June 14th.
Extensive play area
Bring the family!
Enjoy the whole day along with their strawberry fields, as Maan Farms offers an entire Barnyard Adventureland experience. My mind was blown by how large this playspace is!
From a massive oversized jumping pillow to wooden climbing castles, to an entire pedal go-kart made of reused tires and yes, they even have a kid-friendly zipline. My son is 5 and probably went on… I’d say about 10 times!) We did not forget to mention all the adorable furry animals on site.
I was not prepared to spend the entire day there, yet we did—there is just so much to do!
With timed visits (booked online) for the strawberry fields, we visited Saturday with great social distancing rules in place, mandatory mask-wearing and even got the chance to meet the matriarch of it all, Mama Maan who was ever so sweet and welcoming. It was my pleasure to meet you, I’ll need to come back and try your specialty Indian cuisine.
This summer, it’s entirely about enjoying BC locally to thank the local businesses for their efforts over the pandemic season. The roots for Maan Farms go as far back as 40+ years with the Maan Family and remains one of the most beloved local family institutions of the Fraser Valley.
