October – The Gaynor Homestead

The Gaynor Homestead

Brendan and Tara Gaynor are the proprietors of The Gaynor Homestead, a small 68 acre farm in Dorchester, Ontario, outside London. The Gaynor Homestead follows a ‘simple, small, slow’ approach to Ontario agriculture traditions and the family works all-year towards producing an annual batch of hand made and locally grown goods. Together with their flock of well-loved Rambouillet sheep (French Merino) and buckfast honeybees, the Gaynor’s produce some of the finest wool grown in Ontario and a delicious assortment of goodies made from the farm.
