Asparagus farm celebrates bounty

A Spallumcheen business is celebrating 16 years of growing asparagus.

Armstrong Asparagus Farm, on Knob Hill Road, will hold a special day Sunday.

Come out to the farm between 1 and 4 p.m. and enjoy complimentary face painting for kids, free farm tours, food demonstrations, recipe ideas and music and more.

Armstrong Asparagus Farm grows the Jersey variety of asparagus.

The Jersey variety produces a thicker spear that is tender and juicy, not stringy or woody.
