Outdoor Brick Bread Oven
Located at our Fructova Heritage Site. Volunteer bakers rise early to hand bake bread in a historic, outdoor brick oven. The Pride of the Valley flour we use is milled locally at the Grand Forks Doukhobor Heritage Milling Society’s original 1915 location.
This interactive demonstration occurs during our summer months on Thursday mornings. We invite you to come out and experience the historic bread making where local stories and recipes are shared.
We are always looking for volunteers to assist with this summer program as well as an opportunity for you to learn how to use our historic brick oven. Contact us to volunteer!
This is an operational Blacksmith Shop at our Fructova Heritage Site. Live demonstrations using our fully functional coal forge are fascinating to watch! Bringing the past to the present while local hobbyists demonstrate their art.
Our demonstrations introduce the younger generation to learn this trade either as a hobbyist or professional. Hands-on experiences are available depending on the age of the participant.
These blacksmith demonstrations and trade experiences are available for group advance bookings. Contact us to find out more!
