Located just East of Edmonton in Strathcona County you will find Chicks N Chaps and Bar OA Farms. Chicks N Chaps is a line of condiments including Kickin Honey Mustard, Grainy Beer Mustard, and Dilly Horseradish Mayo developed by Experience Alberta. Ingredients in our mustard and mayo are sourced from other local growers and producers from around Alberta. Taste a sample of our mustards, learn about what we put in them and why, and purchase a little jar to take home.
Bar OA Farms is a micro flower farm growing distinctive, hard-to-find, environmentally sensitive flowers. During your visit you can participate in one of our garden tours which will start at 11:30am and 2:30pm. Learn why we grow flowers, how we grow them and why local flowers are a better choice over imported blooms. You can purchase flowers from the Flower Bar or purchase a ticket to participate in our hand tied bouquet workshop that starts in the barn at 3:00pm. For the littles and little at heart we have floral cookie decorating kits available for purchase.
On the farm you will find a number of photo opportunities including the flower gardens, a tractor, horses, and straw bales.
Have you ever heard of Bunnock? It’s a fun game thought to be created by Russian soldiers that needed to entertain themselves whilst posted in remote areas of Siberia. We will have two sets of the game set up so families can play.
Other free activities for the kids include rock painting, and seed planting (for the first 40 kids on a first come first serve basis).
Pop Up Shops at the farm include:
Funky Mango Food Truck – pick up lunch from the truck and have a picnic on the grass while watching the horses graze.
Fifendekel Pie Shop Café – purchase a handmade pie, including Peach Pie the August feature flavour
Fox and Willow Home Décor – browse beautiful home décor items and find something new to spruce up your house for fall
Join us in August when more than 100 farms, ranches, and ag-tourism operators open their gates and invite visitors to share in local stories, see on-farm demonstrations and purchase locally grown and produced products.
