MOREWOOD — Soak up the sunflowers and ‘bee’ amazed! That’s the plan when Smirlholm Farms opens its doors to the community to showcase the beauty of Morewood and raise funds for the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Cancer Care Fund.
Honey produced at Smirlholm Farms has been voted the best by the Eastern Ontario Beekeepers Association, and from July 29th to August 7th, guests can stop by to enjoy a number of activities at the sweet operation. Featured are educational displays on beekeeping and wildflowers; a 2-acre wildflower plot; horse drawn wagon rides; tractor rides; and even a cocktail trailer. All proceeds from opening day go to the Foundation, the fundraising arm of the nearby local hospital in Winchester.
Organizer Glenn Smirle says he wants to give back to the community and share his fascination with honeybees.
Smirlholm Farms is located at 65 Main Street, Morewood, Township of North Dundas. The event runs from 10 am to 8 pm each day. Tickets are $8 online or $10 at the door. Tickets are available at www.smirlholmfarmshoney.ca or contact Glenn Smirle at 613-371-0962.
