Charles Riley and his family began farming on the property that is now Brooklands Farm in October 1876. A son, George, followed in his father's footsteps, building a large frame house on the property for his wife and family in 1899, and a new barn in 1901.
Over the years, Brooklands Farm has undergone a transition from dairy farming to market gardening and a thriving maple syrup operation. Tile drainage, irrigation and soil improvement initiatives have enhanced and sustained the land, the barn and dairy have been restored, and the three houses on the property have been refurbished.
Located in the heart of Muskoka, Brooklands farm has supported six generations of the Riley Family since 1876. Our farm includes a meandering stream, wetlands, forest, fields and heritage buildings. During the season, we produce our own maple syrup, vegetables and berries, which are picked daily and available when you visit the farm. We welcome visitors to pick their own berries and selected vegetables during the season.
We also have weekly deliveries to a growing number of local chefs and families across Muskoka who support the local food movement.
Our produce is grown using sustainable farming methods, relying on improving soil health rather than chemicals.
Come visit us for a memorable fresh local food experience!
Like the seasons our opening hours change all the time. Please call ahead to avoid disappointment or make an appointment!
