Heritage South Surrey farmhouse reopens to public July 2

Activities, tours mark Canada Day weekend

South Surrey’s Historic Stewart Farmhouse, at 13723 Crescent Rd., reopens to the public this Friday (July 2), with demonstrations planned throughout the weekend.

According to a news release, the farm will host everything from tours with a costumed guide and a scavenger hunt, to butter-churning demos (at 2 and 4 p.m. Saturday), lawn games and more.

“We’re very excited to welcome visitors back for Farmhouse tours,” curator Jerrilin Spence said in the release. “Our popular tours are fun, educational, and participatory for all ages.”

Tours of the Victorian home run in 30-minute sessions Thursday and Friday from 12:30-3:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m., with unlimited time to explore the scenic grounds.

Pre-registration is required to tour the farmhouse, and only six visitors from the same ‘bubble’ are allowed per session.

Those who pre-book a tour for this Saturday or Sunday will receive a free box of Murchie’s Historic Stewart Farm tea, the release adds. Tour participants are expected to wear a mask during their tour.
