February 1, 2014 is the first day the London Farmhouse, Tea Room and Gift Shop re-open to public after the month-long winter break.  It is also the second day of the Chinese New Year.  To join the celebration, the Farmhouse and Tea Room are decorated with big red lanterns and colorful papercuttings. Come along with family and friends for a Chinese New Year Tea in the Tea Room on February 1 and 2 between 12 noon to 5 pm, and as a Chinese tradition, kids will receive a special “laisee” (red packet of good fortune).

At the start of a New Year, the London Heritage Farm Society would like to share with all members, volunteers and supporters the highlights on the activities and achievements of London Heritage Farm from January 2012 to June 2013 and how these have contributed to “increase public awareness of Richmond’s rich past and present, enhance quality of place, build a sense of community connectedness and engage citizens across generations to impact Richmond’s future”.

Following is an extract of the section covering London Heritage Farm in the 2012-2013 Heritage Update presented and published by the City of Richmond.
