I last checked out the farm in August, here is a review of the farm .
In August 2021 we took in the fall festival at Maan Farms. There was a lot to keep us busy for the best part of the day. From the pumpkin patch, corn maze and barnyard adventures with a stop of lunch at Mama Maan Kitchen for lunch. We were sure to take in their seasonal drinks, pumpkin donuts and pumpkin icecream – delish! We were happy to see they had all the items on the menu available this time. The corn maze was too muddy to do much of, so we headed to the barnyard adventure to fee the animals! My kids especially love the bunnies that are roaming freely on the grounds. We were gifted the experience but as always my opinions are my own.
Closed due to flooding, until further notice.
Singletree Winery presents an exclusive new tasting experience for wine lovers in the Fraser Valley: Di Vine Domes. By current Public Health regulations, and as it changes the winery will adapt, small groups from the same household (up to 6 people) or single persons with a max bubble of two, are invited to taste wine and enjoy local goodies inside decorated transparent domes.
The domes at Singletree Winery are placed by the vines and offer a cozy atmosphere that is COVID-safe and great for families or couples wishing to enjoy a special date.
The winery team offers two domes with distinct themed décor: The Canadian Cabin with traditional porch chairs, faux fur rugs and a rustic feel, and the Enchanted Forest, with a chandelier, live edge table and cozy seats. Both domes are heated and complemented with winter decorations and lights.
There is a minimum spend of $50 per person to experience the domes, and bookings are 1.5 hours to enjoy one of three tasting experiences. View these choices here.
