Described as a “new, modified service,” the tours will be limited to 10 people or less, and pre-registration with a MySurrey account – available at www.surrey.ca/culture-recreation/1697.aspx – is required. Tours are available every 30 minutes.

Highlights of the 30-minute tours will include the 1894 farmhouse, pole barn, heirloom gardens, root cellar, boat building and former threshing shred. Visitors will learn about the history of the farm, and the Stewart family themselves.

Physical distancing will be enforced on each tour, and all other buildings on the South Surrey property will be closed.
