We live just down the street from the Heritage farm, and like to walk over in the summer to see the animals. We also love to get lunch at the quaint Rose & Kettle Tea room.

Cute little farm located in the middle of a housing development. Great for young children (the animals) and for grandparents (all the history)

You should make an effort to come out to see this place. Give the chance to see and touch some of the animals. They have it all done up for the Holidays and have a great collection of Photos and artefacts from the area.
