Maple Grove Productions is very proud to present a brand new series entitled Great Canadian Adventures.
In this series, I want to take a closer look at the many people, places and things that define us as Canadians. There are so many amazing historic locations around here and inspiring stories to hear from the people in our community that are often overlooked, so it makes sense to me to start local here in Eastern Ontario and then expand out from there. Everything we’re about to cover in these episodes has an important place in our heritage, and they deserve their chance to shine and be appreciated.
In our adventures, we’ll visit various hiking trails, wildlife reserves, sanctuaries, conservation areas, ghost towns, farms, homesteads and much, much more. That said, let’s now take the first step in our series of journeys together.
And what better place to start than right here at home, at Maple Grove Farm, with one of the major staples of the Canadian diet, pure, organic, artisanal maple syrup.
Don't forget to show your support by liking, commenting, subscribing and hitting that bell icon to stay up to date on everything that's going on at Maple Grove Farm. We also have a new VLOG series starting at the end of February so stay tuned for that.
Tune in to Maple Grove Productions for homesteading 'How To' videos, documentaries, local permie spotlights and more!
Location: St. Andrews West, Ontario, Canada (Zone 5b)
Today we're visiting Countryside Adventures in Moose Creek, Ontario. This attraction features beautifully manicured skating trails, hiking and cross-country skiing trails, hot beverages, maple treats, crazy carpet sledding and a small petting zoo. Based on the sign, we think they also do fishing too we're but not sure. Check out their website and facebook page below for more information. I highly recommend it!
This time around, we're heading to Ottawa, Ontario to check out House of Targ, a retro arcade featuring a wide range of arcade games, pinball games and their token perogies. It's great fun for the whole family and there are even live bands at night for the grown-ups.
Today we're heading over to the "Seedy Saturday" seed exchange over at the Benson Center in Cornwall, Ontario. This is a great event to meet local growers, partake in fun activities with the kids and obviously there are tons of seeds to buy. We had a blast and we'll be sure to go back again next year, and if all goes well, maybe even a booth at some point too.
It's been a while since we had ourselves a good old 'Great Canadian Adventure', so here we go! And what better place to go than the Springer Market Square farmers market in Kingston, Ontario, one of the oldest and longest running markets in Canada.
