Explore Farm to Fork (CANCELLED)

Kelsey - Forestburg (Return)


August 15, 2020

Due to COVID-19 our summer train excursions have been cancelled.  At this time we are issuing gift cards to our guests who have purchased tickets on our summer excursions which can be redeemed via Eventbrite on any of our fall 2020 train excursions or future train excursions scheduled in 2021.  We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you on the rails when it is safe to do so.

Travel by train to meet your rural neighbours on this unique Open Farm Days event. We are partnering with Flagstaff County & the Ellis Bird Farm for this special farm-to-fork event in rural Alberta. Come meet with local farmers, out in their fields, where they will talk about the crops they raise and the methods they use to provide food for your table.  As we roll down the tracks, listen to the local wildlife experts from Ellis Bird Farm tell us about the wildlife & birds in the area.  Enjoy locally grown snacks & beverages in the open-air gondola car. When we arrive in the village of Forestburg you will be treated to a locally sourced & served full course meal. Then take some time to stroll through the village. Take a tour of our locally owned Heritage grain elevator, dive into history at the Forestburg Museum or enjoy the artistic works of local artist Bill Webb at his studio which will be open for tours. Wrap up your day with a cool train-themed drink at the saloon before heading back down the tracks.
