Directions from Salem:

  1. Drive north on the Elora road from Salem to Alma.

    1. Turn left at the lights in Alma.

    2. Turn left onto 1st Line West.

    3. The green number is 6950, and the farm is on the right (west) side of the road.

    4. Follow the driveway around the barn, through the corn field, and down the treacherous hill…sounds fun, eh!?!?

You’ll find all the action hiding back there by the pond.
