Well it’s November 1st and that means that many of your stomachs are full of Halloween treats, and your compost bins are full of pumpkin.  If you picked this year’s pumpkin directly from the field at Aldor Acres farm, then you probably saw this sign. Albert and Dorothy, the owners of the Aldor Acres Pumpkin Patch don’t let their squash’s go to waste after the spooky holiday, they are reused – as food for their herd of cows!

5 Things I Bet You Didn’t Know You Could Find in Langley!

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Itineraries, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

As a fairly recent new resident to the area, I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing many new things, and have brought an outsiders view to my work which complemented that of my coworkers; most of whom were born and raised in Langley.  I had to learn the routes throughout the community; how to get to the grocery store, where the local farmers market is, which the best exit off the freeway is to get to where I needed to go, and so on.  Because of my many exploratory travels, I had the opportunity to discover a lot about a place I really knew nothing about.

A Haunting Tour into the Past – Fort Langley’s “Grave Tales”

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Heritage & Culture, Itineraries, Wine & Food

Fort Langley offers ghastly, ghostly and eerily erudite October walking tours!

One recent evening, we meet our guide, who’s outfitted in Hudson Bay trader garb. While fortifying ourselves with Fort Wine Company’s cranberry wine, fine BC merlot and delicious local cuisine at Beatniks’ Bistro, Amn Johal introduces us to some of Fort Langley’s monthly themed events. “Grave Tales 2012 itself is based on scholarly Fort Langley research, residents’ insights…and notable paranormal encounters!”

Local Wine & Turkey Pairings

Categories: Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Wine & Food

Thanksgiving is now only a few days away and if you’re like me, frantically trying to hunt down the perfect sized turkey at the nearest supermarket or local turkey farm, hoping there are still a few boxes of stuffing left on the shelves (I wish I could say I had my own secret recipe), and planning on picking up some of the freshest cranberries at Saturday’s Cranberry Festival in Fort Langley, then you might have also forgotten to pick up a bottle of perfectly paired local wine.

Children are back in school, the heat of the summer has gone, and a crisp breeze makes you zip up your jacket and throw on a scarf. As you head out the door you are met with golden leaves scattered about the lawn at your feet. It’s autumn.
