Log Barn, Armstrong

#3 of 13 in Things to do in Armstrong
Try and buy mouthwatering, locally made cuisine at Log Barn. Established in 1995, the food store specializes in locally made meats, such as sausages and beef jerky, as well as pies, tarts, and condiments, such as caramel syrup and BBQ sauce. Surrounded by tree-filled hillside and evergreen plains, the shop also features sculptures of dinosaurs, including one of a tyrannosaurus rex pulling a wagon. Children will love observing the local goats; watch as they walk up a bridge and wait for food to be hoisted to them.

  • Don't go. Sure the dinosaurs and dragons and big log beams look kinda cool but there is many other places to get more fresh and better priced produce! This is the definition of a tourist trap.  more »
  • For some reason, The Log Barn reminded me of one of those cheesy roadside attractions you'd see back in the 1960s or 70s. I absolutely loved it! My wife and I took time from a late season holiday in O...  more »
  • My family has been stopping in at The Log Barn for many, many,many years. What they have done to this beautiful spot and a once wonderful produce stand is horrifying. There is no rhyme, reason, or the...  more »

  • It's The Log Barn! A very well known establishment that is loved by everyone driving either to or from BC in Spallumcheen. Everyone knows the small town feel of the LB, and more importantly, everyone knows the goats! Although the business what purchased by a group of investment capitalists, further commercializing the price point, it's still a great place to stop, stretch, and enjoy the old country style scenery. The only reason 4 stars are showing rather than 5 is the prices for almost every item are a bit high, but I think it's because everything is grown and packaged locally. I think... ?
  • The log barn is the most amazing barn made of logs that I've ever seen with a goat walk. Staff was helpful and provided me with fresh goats to walk when I was there. They have goats, they have walks, what more could you ask for? Come on down to the barn of logs in Armstrong log barn canada. I love you. I give you my life long barn.
  • I would never give these people my money ever again. Hickory farms is way better they actually have staff that know what they are trying to sell. Last time I walked up to their counter I over heard an employee talking about how she's cheating on her husband. Very classy employees. I was never asked if I needed help. So I walked away. Very hostile environment. 0/10 would recommend.
  • Disclaimer: Worked here for a month, hired as Assistant Manager on October 28. Let go on December 10 with absolutely no reason given. Was taken off of the schedule and told "a new schedule will be given out" on December 1st. So instead of parting ways and allowing me to find new work, they strung me along for a full week to 10 days just weeks before Christmas. Thanks, I really appreciated that! Would not give them my business. In my opinion, everything is overpriced. I have witnessed a manager from the head office working at a kiosk, and advising staff to repackage jerky in unsanitary conditions in their storage room. They advertise as being a locally owned business, part of the local economy. However, they were recently (within the last couple years)bought out by businessmen from Vancouver who import most of or all of their physical goods from China. They also claim to have food made locally. Some of it is. The meat is, however, produced at Nossack Meats in Red Deer, AB. I was told specifically, by the director of marketing, not to mention this fact if at all possible, due to many customers in BC preferring to shop local. I was told that it wouldn't be good if that news made it's way back to their local client base. I believe I was let go because I was standing up for the temporary employees to head office. I was told, incorrectly, by their payroll lady that: overtime is only paid out if you work more than 88 hours in two weeks. This is completely false, and she advised me to "call the Labour Board and double check". I did, even though I already knew the law. They confirmed that overtime is paid out past 8 hours a day or 44 hours a week, whichever is greater. There is no mention of 88 hours or a two week period. They took advantage of their staff until I called them out, and they may have used my release as a way to continue to do so. TL;DR I used to work here, so please take my word for it that you are better off supporting Hickory Farms than this business run by braindead idiots.
  • The Log Barn is a quaint shop that's full of strange stuff. There's many decorations around such as dinosaurs, bears and wagons, there's also some farm animals including the goats which you can feed by putting some food into a bucket and lifting it up to them. The shop is filled with different kinds of foods and drinks all of which have strange labels on them. I find it interesting and weird, you can find cowboys and ladies in weird costumes on jerky or jam. It is a little pricy though so that's something you should watch for. I go here mostly to walk around and get some snacks while driving from Alberta to Kelowna and many other people do that as well. Overall it's a weird little shop that's good for breaks and some light shopping
