Westbrook House Opening Ceremony Posted on May 18, 2014

The opening ceremony for the Westbrook House at the Westfield Heritage Village was held on Sunday May 18 2014.  It was such a pleasure to see our former bunkhouse restored to its original condition.  Many people worked very hard to make it happen - the house had nearly been lost several times had it not been for key moments and people who stepped in to save it.  If you get the chance, visit Westfield (www.westfieldheritage.ca) - it's an amazing site of 365 acres with 55 restored building - a wonderful reminder of times gone by.  Steve Chary Jr was given a plaque for his part in saving the building, as well as two of our seasonal workers who worked for weeks with Clayton Barker carefully dismantling it.  We will soon put a plaque of our own up at the original site of the building, hopefully in time for the planned celebrations in Oakland for the end of the War.

Chary Produce and the War of 1812 Posted on Jul 14, 2012

On the weekend of July 7, 2012 our farm was included in a historical tour for the bicenntenial of the War of 1812.
 
The last battle of the this war took place just down the hill from our farm at Malcolm's Mill.  A dozen people or so stopped by to visit the site of our old house from that era - it is thought that the commanding officers had met to plan the battle in this house.  This house is currently being reconstructed at the Westfield Heritage Village.  For more information on the bicenntenial go to http://www.grandriver1812.ca.

 

Appreciating our Workers Posted on Jul 10, 2012

July 7 marked the thirtieth anniversary of two of our seasonal workers.  Pictured here is "Shorty" with our display on the front lawn of the farm.  We are grateful and priviliged to be able to have our seasonal workers here every year - we could not carry on our business without them.  We have five workers that have been with us for over 25 years each - they feel like family when they return in the spring!
