Brooklands Farm

Description

Description:
Charles Riley and his family began farming on the property that is now Brooklands Farm in October 1876.

A son, George, followed in his father’s footsteps, building a large frame house on the property for his wife and family in 1899, and a new barn in 1901.

The third generation of Riley’s, Roy and his wife, took over the farm in 1918 and established a dairy business. In 1937, they dismantled the original log house log-by-log and rebuilt it in a new location to house a pasteuriser, as was required by new legislation.

Why these product/services considered as GREEN? (what’s the impact on the environment/community)

Over the years, Brooklands Farm has undergone a transition from dairy farming to market gardening, a thriving maple syrup operation and now a popular event venue for weddings and celebrations in the restored and refurbished heritage buildings.
