The Farm

This fifty acre farm is just 5 kilometers from Elora and backs onto the Grand River.
Gord and Rob bought the farm in 2008. Since that time they have undertaken many projects on the farm, including:

  • Renovated the barn, converting it from dairy to horses
  • Built a sand ring and many horse jumps
  • Planted approximately 500 trees around the perimeter of the farm to reduce erosion and improve the land and bird habitat
  • Installed blue bird boxes to aid in the repopulating of a once near extinct native species
  • Built a dry stone wall
  • Established a perennial pollinator garden
