Over one hundred years ago, on the banks of the Fraser River, Annie Huble grew acres and acres of potatoes which she sold to travelers passing through the area. Today that tradition continues at Huble Homestead, where you can learn all about the heirloom potato varieties grown on site, see the garden where they were produced, and purchase your own to sample at home!

Celebrate the mighty spud at Huble Homestead with games and crafts, music, tours, and demonstrations. Come early to buy heirloom potatoes, grown in the Huble garden, as well as other vegetables! 

Watch and take part in heritage demonstrations such as ice cream and butter making, and learn all about cheese making from Tracey Johnson of Chat with our summer staff as they demonstrate their heritage projects. 

Kick back and relax to live music, play one of our popular lawn games, try out the stilts, and treat yourself to a fresh piece of pie in the General Store! The BBQ will be serving a pancake breakfast from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, and from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM, burgers and hot dogs will be on the menu. In addition to our regular menu, we'll also be featuring a potato-ey menu. pancakes! Peruse the General Store and take 10% off all items (excluding food). 

Afterwards, revert back to your childhood by taking part in potato sack races, Hot Potato, or the potato and spoon race, and try your hand at potato stamping in the Welcome Barn. 

Huble Homestead Historic Site is a 30 minute drive north of Prince George, BC. Leave the city behind and make your way up Highway 97 for 40 kilometres, before turning off on Mitchell Road to continue another 6 kilometres down a well-maintained dirt road.

Huble Homestead is dog friendly and open daily from 10:00am to 5:00pm for guided tours and shopping in the General Store. Enjoy a picnic or purchase lunch from the BBQ as you relax in the fresh air. Admission is by donation, with a recommended amount of $10.00 per family.
