Summertime at Andrews’ Scenic Acres

  Halton Hills Chamber of Commerce    held a Business After 5 event at Andrews’ Scenic Acres, which is a beautiful farm located in view of the Niagara Escarpment which rims almost half the horizon at this point.

     It’s a pick-your-own farm with a shop and a winery. Strawberries are beginning to ripen and later in the season you’ll be able to pick raspberries, cherries, currants, gooseberries, blueberries, corn, pumpkins and cut flowers.

     Andrews have won many awards for their Scotch Block Winery wines. They also had their Oak Aged Black Currant wine chosen as one of three fruit wines to be served at Queen’s Park for 2008 to 2009. Black Currant, Black Raspberry and Raspberry Rhapsody were some of the wines being offered at the Chamber event, as well as a delightful strawberry lemonade.

     In addition to the standard cheese and crackers, the food treats were fresh strawberries and whipped cream, strawberry frozen yogurt and chocolate-covered strawberries, all enjoyed despite the heat wafting through the tent and the tree-shaded picnic table area. You don’t get more of a summer experience than this.

     The farm, shop and winery are for sale, so if you know someone wanting an established rural retail operation, send them down the 10th Sideroad for a look.

     What’s your favourite pick-your-own farm?

  • I just picked the first strawberries of the season at Dykstra’s in the Beaver Valley, and they were (all)delicious. I will have to go pick some more.

  • When my children were small, we used to celebrate the end of school each year with a trip to Springridge Farm. Besides picking strawberries, we would sometimes buy a pie or tarts and browse through the gift shop. Mmmm, thinking I may go there this week!
