Every day is a working day at the Sorrento Centre Farm, but on Mondays during the Five Weeks of Summer, Farmer Angelo takes a break from field work to welcome guests and show them around for a short tour.
On Monday July 10, a group of guests had an opportunity to see the bounty! Be sure to join the scheduled tours on Mondays July 17, 24, 31 and August 7th at 2pm.
Did you know? In late 2008 Mary Rawson donated her eight acre farm property to the Sorrento Centre, with the provision that the land is used while maintaining the natural habitat for local songbirds.
This beautiful farm is what remains of the original Coubeaux family homestead. About three acres are the fields, the property includes critical bird habitat and orchard. Just a 5-minute walk from the lake, the cottonwood forest has grown up around the old cherry orchard and barn and several very old Douglas fir and cedar trees provide more habitat for wildlife. The heritage Finnish tongue and groove cedar barn is the oldest structure in the Sorrento area.
