Paul and Joan Chamberlin started the family farm shortly after moving here in 1976.
It was established as a hobby farm and family activity making use of the land.
In the late 70s and 80s they started selling sweet corn on the side of the road out of a wheel barrow for some pocket money for their boys, and this grew into the iconic farm business it is today.
The Chamberlin’s raised cattle and horses in the beginning but transitioned into vegetables after Paul developed an allergy to the animals.
By the early 90s we were growing over an acre of diversified vegetable crops, 2 acres of strawberries, 4 acres of pumpkins, 6 acres of sweetcorn and 60 acres of hay.
The farm stand, placed in the front of the current farm building, built in 1993 was used as a storefront to sell the vegetables, flowers, local baked goods, maple, honey.
The farm now has dialed back production so retirement can be a little more relaxed, but operations still continue for the biggest crops of hay, sweet corn and pumpkins.
