Growing the Next Generation of Farmers

Many of Ontario Farm Fresh members have more than one generation working the farm. The sons and daughters, who have gone off to university or college or tried their hand at another career, often find themselves returning to their roots and bringing with them a fresh, new vibe to the farming business. Let us put you in touch with multi-generational farmers and their families.

Farms with a Twist

Beyond the pick-your-own strawberries and hay rides through apple orchards we can offer you stories on one-of-a-kind farms such as:

  • Sweet Cider: In September 2009, Tom Wilson and Nicole Judge opened the Spirit Tree Estate Cidery in the Caledon area. It is the only cidery of its kind in Ontario. The on-farm market is made of straw bales and is heated geothermally. To prepare for their sojourn into the world of cider, Wilson and Judge flew to Somerset, England in March 2007 to take “Cider Making Principle and Practice” from Peter Mitchell, the world-renowned expert in cider making. In December of that same year, they once again joined Mitchell at a follow up course “Cider Making- Building Expertise” offered at Cornell University in New York. They are currently working on their first batch of ice cider.

How to Make a Corn Maze
