Greetings from Secret Lands Farm!
We are an organically managed Family-Run Farm, located in Grey Highlands County North-West Ontario, 140 km from Toronto. We are farmstead sheep’s milk dairy producers, specializing in various artisanal Kefir Cheeses, delicious Dairy, gourmet Lamb, and Lamb Charcuteries. Press here to see our selection in ‘products’ menu!
All of our 400 sheep are purebred East Friesian, originated in Northern Germany, and are one of the best dairy breeds. When fed a high-quality diet, as ours are, their milk is sweet and extremely high in protein.
You will meet and greet some of our happy sheep in the barn (please wear comfy shoes)
We also have four dogs, ten cats, 100 hens, few guinea fowls and Llama named Lawrence!! You will also see our Cheese Production Creamery. Farming happens rain or shine, so as for Farm Tour! Please dress accordingly.
The Wilcox is a pristine, quiet lake just about 20-30 minutes beautiful walk from the barn. We have private access to the lake, where you can swim or relax on the beach.
Our lush pastures are for haylage in the summer and grazing habitat for our sheep and lambs.
The smell of freshly mowed hay fills the midsummer nights. The first cut comes in early summer and is always the best. The sweet smell of hay stirs good memories of lovely, pungent, warm, inviting, relaxing, summer. It’s all of this and so much more! p.s. we have the freshest air for you 🙂
Every Weekend our visiting hours are from 10 am – 1 pm and from 3 am – 6pm. Children under 4 years are free admission! We have 5 different types of groups. If you have problems with booking online please call Tatyana at 416 598-2624, thank you! We hope to see you soon!
Some historical data about our County
The first settlers of the Grey Highlands are from 1840. Grey Highlands were not always as described above. The various Ice Ages came and went, the last ending perhaps as recently as about 12.000 years ago. The resulting tree-less, tundra-like barren lands, subject to the fierce weathering storms, evidently had no attraction for the earliest Paleo-Indian hunters. Some artifacts from 10.000 years ago found in Flesherton are now located in the Royal Ontario Museum collection.
Our beautiful visitors!
