Country Farms & Country Charm | Day Tour
Saturday August 25th 2018 | Day Tour From Medicine Hat
Join Prairie Sprinter for a day out in southeastern Alberta on a “COUNTRY FARMS and COUNTRY CHARM” tour.
This full-day tour begins with a visit to the ALBERTA PRAIRIE ELEVATOR MUSEUM and catalog house in Acadia Valley, followed by a light lunch in the Elevator’s tearoom. The afternoon will be spent having an exclusive peek into the everyday lives of the ACADIA BRETHREN HUTTERITE COLONY. There will be time to explore the farming and colony operations, enjoying some homemade bread and jam, visiting with the women who run the Colony kitchen, and purchasing some home-made and grown goodies to take home – an experience not to be missed. Then it’s off to KUHN FARMS for the evening, which begins with an insightful tour of the combine harvesting process. The day ends in the field, joining farm hands for a locally prepared feast. Nothing like a some country cooking to end a great day out in rural Alberta. As the sun begins to set on the lush summer prairie, you will return to Medicine Hat refreshed from your dose of country life.
Includes: All admissions, light refreshments, lunch, dinner and guided round-trip transportation provided by Prairie Sprinter.
