Life on the ranch

This week's journey to Kamloops included a visit to the Devick Ranch at Heffley Creek. David, Mike and Paul Devick, along with cousins and brothers make this truly a family operation. Established in 1906 by Paul's grandfather, today ranching means being versatile and broadening one;s skill base. Our feature interviews look at the ranching life, living with beef recalls and a look to the future. Listen in on our podcast. (Thursday and Friday's shows)

Cranberry Crazy

The cranberry harvest is coming. Visit Fort Langley this Saturday where you can scoop them up by the pound at the 17th annual Cranberry Festival.
