Healthy home cooking, comfort and convenience north of Bowmanville

As a guest, stroll the property to see Model A Fords, 5 warbirds, Sherman tank, Willy's Jeeps, locomotive and U-Boat in pond; or book a tour with Ian, the replica builder and ultimate recycler. Learn the historical significance of each replica and Ian's unique construction techniques using mostly recycled materials.
