Farm museum is a rare treat

A visit to the farm museum in Fort Langley links the past to the present.

Editor: In Fort Langley among the other excellent historic venues sits the BC Agricultural and Farm Museum. It is an exceptional and intriguing visit, linking the past to the present. No one should miss the chance to see and appreciate the world-class exhibition of old artifacts which conjure up visions of grandfathers on the land and in the forests and grandmothers in the kitchen and pantry.

Massive tractors, huge machines, small unique cultivators, butter rollers, old wringer washers and milk separators are all there.

The awesome buildings are filled with what life used to be. It really represents work. The walls are covered with instruments demonstrating long days in the fields, woods and homes. It is hard to describe the intrigue and wonder as you walk through the great halls of well-displayed and organized exhibits.

Congratulations to the volunteers and everyone who has worked on this fascinating collection.  It is a wonderful contribution to our history.

Bays and Bob Blackhall,
