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.
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”!

8th annual Apple Cider Pressing Day
Sunday October 25th 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.

Another great way to celebrate the harvest.
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 arrive late November.
We still have our farm animals and Barnyard playground available to visit weekends in November and December. Come and get lost in our corn maze. Our wagon rides and forest walk have ended for the season due mostly to unpredictable weather. They will start up again on Victoria Day weekend when we open for the season.
