WEST AVENUE CIDER HOUSE

Stroll through West Avenue's apple orchards, pack a picnic lunch and sit under one of their shade trees while enjoying a complimentary glass of ice-cold Cider from the Cider House! This year Stuffed Handcrafted Perogies will be onsite offering lunch from 12-6.  Enjoy their handmade perogies- or try out the Special Feature- Dill Pickle Ice cream!  West Avenue will be serving 6 ciders for you to choose from- highly recommended is  ‘The Pollinator’- an homage to the importance of pollination on our farm.  It’s a perfectly refreshing blend of strawberries, apples, pears and honey.

MANORUN ORGANIC FARM

Farmer Chris will be leading wagon rides around their restorative agriculture Oak Savannah field with a brief overview of the Oak Savannah growing system. You can also go for a stroll around their property to see their Tamworth pigs who love crunching on nuts, the hens, and horses. Their ponies Coconut & Kashmir will be out for grooming too! 

Neighbor and artisan Nancy will be selling yarns and rovings  used for knitting, crochet, weaving as well as for needle or wet felting. These all from her  small flock of Icelandic and Icelandic/Romney cross sheep as well as angora goats. The sheep and goats produce  beautiful wool in unique colours. The wool and mohair is milled and processed in Ontario. Our products are small batch .  

Holly of Greenfox will be demonstrating  how to grow your own sprouts and as a special treat will have her awesome Fresh Soft Pretzels for sale! 

Bring a cooler and don’t forget to visit the Farm Store!

LICKETY SPIT FIBRE FARM

Guests to our farm will get the opportunity to have guided tours to meet the sheep and alpacas, as well as to see swans, geese, ducks, and a horse. There will be demonstrations of fibre preparation and dyeing, spinning, weaving, and needle felting. There will be plenty of yarn dyeing taking place  - September is an amazing time for harvesting plants to use for dyeing.  We will also be working with our sheep shearer to hold some shearing demonstrations!

 

Our farm store will be open with a selection of wool and alpaca-related goods such as yarn, roving, socks, soaps, and finished goods, as well as the garlic that we grow.
