Farm & Forest Adventures

Sustainable farming on a 50 acre farm located in southwestern Ontario includes numerous parts working together to achieve the same goal – vitality and growth.  From beautiful rolling fields of alfafa, to large interconnected ponds supporting a huge local watershed, to over 22 acres of Carolinian Forested trails and ravines, our Homestead will provide you a glimpse into a variety of micro-ecosystems within a huge and diverse ecosystem that is sustainable and improving in its ability to grow life.

Our goal is to inspire and educate you and your family as you visit and ask questions, participate in some hands-on activities and enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds of creation, to leave with an appreciation and desire to try something new on your own homestead, however big or small that may be!

Join us for an enjoyable learning experience for all ages as we tour our property and see the joys of a working Homestead.
