Celebrating Chinese New Year could be an old tradition at London Farm. Some might not know that Chinese did have a role in the history of London Farm. According to May (London) Mack’s recollections of growing up on the London Farm back in the 1900’s, there was always a Chinese hand living in the little shack at the edge of the garden who grew all the vegetables for the house, did the cooking and other little odd jobs. She recalled their names as Sing and Chung. There was no mentioning of how they celebrated Chinese New Year but we can assume they have observed this important Chinese tradition.
Today is the first day of the Year of the Goat and the beginning of a week-long celebration of the Chinese New Year, also known as “Spring Festival”. To join the celebration, the Farmhouse will be decorated in red with the hanging of lanterns, duilian and paper cuttings at doors and windows.
Come celebrate the “Spring Festival” with family and friends in the Tea Room this weekend and enjoy a Chinese New Year Tea with scones and special goodies. As a Chinese tradition for blessing, kids will receive a Red Packet with “good fortune” inside. The Farmhouse, Tea Room and Gift Shop will be open on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd from 12 to 5 pm.
Come celebrate Valentine’s Day with your love ones in the romantic setting of our historical Tea Room and enjoy our London Lady Tea with scones and Valentine’s goodies.
Valentine’s Day used to be a day for romantic couples but is now a festival for all to celebrate love and express love to people around us.
Call 604 271 5220 to reserve a Tea for Two or book your Valentine’s Day Tea Party this Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th from 12 to 5 pm.
Don’t forget to visit our Gift Shop for some special gifts for your Valentines.
If you couldn’t find time to see the Teddy Bear Tea Time Christmas Tree put up by London Heritage Farm in the Festival of Trees at Gulf of Georgia Cannery last month, here are some snap shots of the lovely decorated Christmas Tree for you to catch up.
The Festival of Trees was presented by the Steveston Merchants Association, in partnership with the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society and the Steveston Farmers and Artisans Market. Visitors gave donation to vote for their favourite tree and the donations together with part of the admission fees were donated to the Richmond Christmas Fund.
