It’s a Muskoka ‘Must-do’ and a Canadian Signature Experience. Taste wine, use our trails, or just shop our store anytime. Seasonally, there’s always something exciting happening!

Spring is Maple Syrup season, when our tour includes a detour to the sugarbush. It’s also a great time to spot wildlife on our trails. You can even download a geocaching app and try high tech treasure hunting as you search for geocaches hidden on the farm.

Summer is patio time – enjoy a glass of wine and local cheese plate on our scenic patio. Celebrate summer blueberries as our tour includes a stroll to the top of Blueberry Hill and features wine and products made from this native berry.

Autumn is Cranberry harvest! When the fall colours are at their peak, we offer wagon rides, helicopter rides, delicious food, fresh cranberries and even the chance to put on chest waders and take the cranberry plunge!

Winter means our 1.2 kilometer Ice Trail is open for skating (rentals & sharpening available). Enjoy hot mulled wine and warm up by one of the bonfires. You can also snowshoe through a Muskoka winter wonderland on our wooded trails (rentals available).
