- Faspa in Herbert
Stop in at the Herbert CPR Train Station Museum & Information Centre during the summer months for the Faspa experience.
Because many settlers to the Herbert area came from a Mennonite (German/Dutch) background, much of that heritage has become part of Herbert as well. Faspa is the word in the low German language meaning a light lunch of fresh baking and whatever is supplied to put on it, such as cheese, meats, and jams. Since the Mennonite culture did not allow for working on a Sunday, Faspa became a meal easy to make, yet flexible enough to allow for another Mennonite custom, which is unannounced visiting.
