On Saturday, June 24, Turtle Valley Bison Company is proud to announce we are hosting the first ever Turtle Valley Bison Ranch Fest. Renowned Chef Chris Whittaker, Forage Restaurant & Timber Vancouver, and his colleagues Alex Chen of Boulevard, and Robert Belcham of Campagnolo, will be delivering a bison BBQ experience like no other. These well-known Vancouver-based chefs will each apply their talents to delivering unique, mouth-watering bison creations. We are also delighted to welcome local chef Jared Summers, Jack Sams, Quaaout Lodge, to share his creations with us in the field. We formally invite all meat loving, beer drinking, wine fanatic foodies to come enjoy our special day on the ranch and celebrate the best flavours the Shuswap has to offer.
The Turtle Valley Bison Festival runs all afternoon and evening. The public is invited to come explore the ranch during the day, to learn more about these remarkable animals, and soak in the ranch experience. Join us for a guided tour through our rolling paddocks, savour bison burgers cooked fresh in the field, and learn from renowned chefs as they serve up cooking demonstrations, using locally foraged ingredients. Children under 12 are free.
The evening portion of the Bison Festival will feature three guest chefs from Vancouver. Prepare for a mouthwatering experience as you enjoy a grazing style multi-course bison meal. A variety of our favorite local breweries and wineries will be in attendance to make sure nobody gets thirsty. Live music and entertainment will round out this festival in the fields.
Located in beautiful Turtle Valley, just 6km east of the Trans Canada Highway at Squilax, we are a short 25 minute drive to Salmon Arm, and one hour drive to Kamloops.
