Out for a sunny afternoon drive to explore this wondrous place. Unique gifts and creatively made decor all throughout the store. Tea House for coffee and cookies to enjoy while you visit. I'm sure the gardens are beautiful in the summer...worth the drive...

Winter Wheat has a unique charm that appeals to all ages. It's very relaxing and comforting to wander the grounds and marvel at the amazing folk art creations. I was intrigued by how someone took everyday items and made lively colourful characters out of them. My favourite is the black cat playing the saxophone. The shop is cute with nice... More

It's a hard place to describe, but imagine a place where artistic meets recycle..Where the forest comes to life through beautiful paths and creations. And just when we thought we reached the end.... We found the "gift shop". They have the best and certainly not ordinary bird houses - for that alone it's worth a trip to meet the artist... More

Never heard of Sparta before. It was the Labor Day long weekend and we took a drive to Elgin County. It was a good 2 hrs drive from Mississauga but it was nice and no traffic. Winter Wheat was our last stop before heading home and to our big surprise, this place was just adorable. The garden was created from... More
