Cradled in the Caledon Hills on the ridge of the Niagara Escarpment, the 150 acres of the Hart House Farm is the perfect place for any form of retreat…and only 1 hour from Toronto. Hart House Farm welcomes both day and overnight visitors to Ignatieff House, a rustic house fully equipped with kitchen, central heating, washrooms, a piano and a cozy fireplace. The property also features an outdoor sauna and two swimming ponds.
Early spring weather conditions each March permit the Farm’s maple bush to produce a rich supply of sap. Watch the process of “boiling down” the sap in the evaporator at the sugar shack. The Farm’s famous maple syrup can be purchased at the HUB all year round and is also used in the Gallery Grill.
Hart House Farm Committee members are responsible for: Organizing social activities at the Farm and on campus for students, farm workdays to maintain the property, and agricultural projects. We work together with various other student groups such as: The Hot Yam, and the Bike Chain, to enhance co-curricular education, and promote sustainability. We also hold seminars and workshops to teach students skills and highlight issues surrounding food and agriculture.
