Newly added to the shelves in our Gift Shop are some jarred homemade Jan’s Party Pickles, Apple Chutney (mild) and Mixed Mustard Pickles (spicy). Thanks again to Sue, our member/volunteer who handmade these savory preserves at London Heritage Farm’s Kitchen. Sue has even tested these preserves at “FoodAssure” lab and the result of that is they were all an excellent pH for safety. Summer is here and these savory preserves are just great for parties either as condiment in meals or as gift to hosts! Come and shop at our Gift Shop this coming weekend. Our Gift Shop is open Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 5 pm. Starting July 5, 2017, Summer Hours will kick in and we are open every Wednesday through Sunday from 12 to 5 pm.
Visitors attending the London Heritage Farm Classic and Collectible Car Show 2017 yesterday should have felt the uniqueness in the vintage and relaxing atmosphere of this show and shine event. A number of classic and collectible cars of different makes and years were on display under beautiful weather with the heritage London Farmhouse in the backdrop. Among the many vintage cars in the show were a 1933 Talbot AV105, a 1933 Alvis Speed 20 SB, a 1934 Aston Martin MK II Ulster, a 1935 Bentley 3.5 L, a 1956 Mercury Montclair, a 1969 Morgan 4/4 and a 1999 Plymouth Prowler. Big thanks to our member Tony Whitney again for putting together this very special car show.
On Saturday, June 24th, 2017, London Heritage Farm is hosting a Classic and Collectible Car Show. It will be a show and shine event with no judging or other formalities. A wide variety of models of classic and special interest cars will be displayed from 11 am until 3 pm.
This is an informal event with free admission, a great chance to spend an afternoon on a beautiful section of the Fraser and enjoy the locale and (hopefully) some sunny weather. The heritage site setting is perfect for displaying and photographing fine cars.
