Owner info

Year Purchased: 1973

About the owner: Ron and Cheryl are both retired, after long careers in banking and education. They split their time between their home in Toronto and the farm. The farm has been in Cheryl's family for 40 years. In the early 1800's, the first owner was John Elmsley, Chief Justice of Upper and Lower Canada. The farm produces corn, hay, soybeans, wheat and other cash crops. A large crop of fireflies is produced in the summer.

Why the Owner Chose Pickering, ON, Canada:
Our family has been fortunate to have this country retreat to escape the noise and crowds of Toronto. We would like to give others the opportunity to enjoy this unique experience of farm life that is so close to the city but a world away spiritually.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The farmhouse is located on a quiet rural road, surrounded by fields, woods and horses. It is on a wooded lot set back from the road, yet is a short drive to shopping, golf and skiing. Conveniently located to conservation areas and nature trails.
