8th annual Apple Cider Pressing Day

Sunday November 1st- Time to press Apple Cider!

The Geissberger brothers from Farmhouse Cider bring in their mobile cider press to turn our Ontario grown apples into sweet apple cider.  An interesting process with a very tasty outcome.  Get some hot off the press!  Their packaging - bag in the box - keeps the cider fresh for a year with no need for refrigeration.
Another great way to celebrate the harvest.

November

 A Time to Pause, Reflect and Get Ready for Winter

Fall is a great time to visit the farm.  The air is cool and crisp; the colours in nature are glorious. November makes me think of homemade soup, staying warm by the fire and getting the last of the harvest tucked away for winter nourishment.

We are also looking forward to celebrating the Coming of Christmas - our fresh cut Christmas trees have arrived.

We still have our farm animals and Barnyard playground available to visit Thursday to Sunday in November and December.  Our Greens on the Farm Scavenger Hunt has ended for the season but you are still welcome to walk our fields and forest.  Dress for the weather!!!!

Durham Farm and Rural Family Resources (DFRFR) fundraiser

The date has been postponed due to the COVID 19 virus.  Please stay tuned for a new date 

Join us for a fun day on the farm supporting DFRFR.  Come and enjoy all the activities available here on the farm as well as a special presentation of Snow White by the the Dufflebag Theatre.

Snow White

The Queen has always been the “fairest in the land”. Her Magic Mirror tells her so! But when the Queen hears that Snow White has surpassed her, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get rid of her… forever! Fortunately, Snow White escapes into the Deep Dark Woods, where she chances on a tiny cottage. Little does she know that the Seven Dwarves living there will help save her! The classic story of our heroine, as she encounters hapless Huntsmen, bad apples, and little men with big hearts and short tempers, comes to life as DuffleBag helps Snow White towards her “happily ever after”!
