The Farm1

4 sites · RVs, Tents15 acres · Brant, ON
It was 1984 when John found his ‘diamond in the rough’, 20 acres with an orchard on the outskirts of Brantford. O.K., so the house was nothing to write home about but perfect for building a construction yard…no neighbors except for the family across the road that used their property to build log homes. By 1987 the old house was gone, a new one was being built and a shop for working on heavy equipment had been located about 200 ft. from Dr. the back door. It wasn’t until 1996 that things changed very much. Yes, the property around the house had benefitted from a wide array of trees and shrubs that John saved from the construction/demolition jobs he had done and that still thrive today but no big projects (except for equipment purchases) were ongoing. A chance meeting with the neighbor across the road one day resulted in the following dinner conversation, ‘How was your day’ I chirped. ‘Not bad, so-and-so didn’t come in; the truck broke down and I took it for repair; I bought the property across the road, and oh, yeah I’ll need a ride after dinner to pick up the truck’ was John’s casual reply. ‘What was that’? I pressed. ‘Yes, I need a ride after dinner to pick up the truck’ he repeated with a bit more volume. Of course like anyone, I had questions, ‘Do you want peas or corn with dinner’? ‘What time do you want to go to get the truck’? ‘The property across the road’, 10 acres, still has the 4 storey barn with its twin tiled silos which was built in 1914 and the big white house with wrap around porch that once was home to a Doctor and his family. Built so the Doctor could see his patients in the front with the family living in the back was very common in the day. Things remained relatively peaceful until 2000 when after studying alpacas for more than 6 years I bought our first three. Back in 2000 alpacas and llamas were not frequently seen on farms and because they could been seen from the road they received A LOT of attention. People driving by would stop and ask about them, ask if they could take a picture or two and that was when I would hear over and over again ‘You have a beautiful place here, I wish I/we could stay’. Well, if you want to visit and stay in the city it’s doable, we call it a hotel. But visiting a farm and staying well, that isn’t so easy. Each year we would see more and more families coming to ‘The Farm’ as they would call it. Some came to see the alpacas and horses, some came for a stroll and to check out the horse drawn milk and bread delivery wagons, some to have family birthday parties, others to have engagement/wedding/Christmas card pictures…and so many asked if there was any way they could spend a day or two. In 2021 during a conversation with a friend I mentioned we were in the process of gutting the 1100 sq. ft. space downstairs and turning it into an Airbnb! Right away she said, ‘I don’t know why you don’t have a Hipcamp? You’ve got that great area by the new barn that Hipcampers would love’! After a little investigation I found out what a Hipcamp was…and as they say, the rest is future.

Greener Pastures Eco Farm

4 sites · RVs, Tents75 acres · Woodstock, ON
Our farming adventure began in the Spring of 2015 on a 15 acre farm. In 2020 we moved to a 75-acre farm just outside of Woodstock, Ontario. Carl's childhood passion of animal husbandry was given a new purpose when our family made a conscious decision to change the way we related to our food. We began a family quest to eat locally and sustainably. As our little farm grew we developed relationships with our greater community and Greener Pastures was born! As our farming adventure continues, we are loving that each day brings new opportunities for learning. We invite you to join us as we continue to seek greener pastures! While here, be sure to visit the On-Farm Shoppe for fresh eggs, meats, and other great local products.

The best camping near Bronte Creek Provincial Park guide

Overview

About

With many interpretive programs and amenities near ravines and marshland, Bronte Creek Provincial Park combines convenience with the outdoors. Separated by Bronte Creek, the day-use areas and campground are separate—the east site has a huge day-use area with a 1.8-acre pool, playground, and playbarn, while the campground side, open from April to October, has 400+ roomy sites. Visitors can enjoy disc golf or hiking one of the four hiking trails through the Bronte Creek Valley in summer and tobogganing, cross-country-skiing, and snowshoeing near the ravine in winter. The Spruce Lane Farm House is a living history museum demonstrating early farm life including live farm animals.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for ravine exploring: It’s easy to dip your toes into the creek from nearby Woodland and Ravine campgrounds. Ravine sites also have more privacy than the rest. 
  • Best for groups: If you’re here for a large family gathering, the Prairie Campground is closest to the group camping, as well as the camp store and off-leash dog trail. 
  • Best for larger RVs: The Prairie loop is created to fit larger RVs but is suitable for tents and smaller RVs as well.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Mid-week is less busy during the summer months.
  2. Holiday weekends are busy, so book on shoulder season or midweek for less competition.
  3. Online bookings open five months in advance at 7am. Have alternate sites ready in case yours are taken.

When to go

Located near apple orchards, Bronte Creek is great to visit in fall for the colours and quieter off-season. Spring is a great time to catch sight of the hundreds of owls, merlin, and hawks in the park, and even better, springtime is when most of the farmstead’s baby animals are born. The large day-use area opposite of the campground is open year-round. 

Know before you go

  • RV electrical outlets can be far from the RV—bring a long extension cord.
  • If planning to hike, bring some water-resistant boots and rain gear, as trails are notoriously muddy and slippery in spring. The ravine is deep at points (up to 50 metres straight down) so wear proper shoes and tread carefully.
  • Bring bikes to zoom around the campground on the crushed gravel road.
  • Bronte has two leash-free dog areas: one half-kilometre loop in the day-use area and a two-kilometre loop at the north section of the campground.
