Your sense will be indulged at Greendale Country Sampler this weekend.
From sips of tea to bites of sweet and savoury snacks, from the sights and sounds of wildlife to the fresh, floral scents of soap, each of the 12 locations has something unique to offer.
The Greendale Country Sampler, now in its 11th year, features various small, country businesses that will be welcoming the public to come and sample their goods on Saturday.
There are 11 business stops and one garden rest stop. The businesses include Anita’s Organic Grain and Flour, Chilliwack Original Corn Maze, Chilliwack River Valley Natural Honey Ltd., Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve Society, Greendale Herb and Vines, 5 Acres Ranch, Happy Days Dairy/Heavenly Cheese, The Local Harvest Market, New Moon Tea Co., Rustic Soap Co., Smits & Co.W Farm Cheese, and Willow Creek Vineyard.
New Moon Tea Co. is the one new stop on the sampler this year. It produces a variety of teas and tonics using organic ingredients grown on their farm or from other organic growers.
The majority of the products available throughout the sampler are grown and/or produced right on each farm.
The one stop that is not a business and has been with the sampler since it started is 5 Acres Ranch on Blackburn Road. The private farm features extensive gardens, set up like a big outdoor cafe, and offers a broad lunch/snack menu with sweet and savoury items. They also have gluten- and dairy-free foods.
The 11th annual Greendale Country Sampler runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20 at 12 different places throughout Greendale.
