Enjoy John’s Backyard!

We have 4 acres of wonderful wildlife that LOVE unsalted peanuts. You might be able to hand-feed our Chickadees, Squirrels and Chipmunks. Our backyard is all yours, with a trail to our barn & Henson Road.

Typical walk in the Forest – Peanut was being Camera Shy…

We have a huge pile of Wawa Area Core Samples from past Diamond Exploration. People LOVE them – Help Yourself!

When you drive through Northern Ontario, build your own Inukshuk! (Pronounced In-ook-shook) They are stone monuments erected in the image of humans. One of their purposes was to communicate direction in the harsh and desolate Arctic. They were a tool for survival, and symbolic of the unselfish acts of a nomadic people – the Inuit – who built them as signposts to make the way easier and safer for those who followed.
