The farm has 18 acres of Acadian forest to explore. Solomon Brook borders the North and East edges of the forest. The woods are primarily coniferous, consisting of Pine, Hemlock, Fir and Spruce trees. A number of large, towering and magnificent Pine can be found throughout the woods, and they stand as great grandfathers and grandmothers watching over the woods. Much of the present forest would likely have come from these trees. There is also a large grove of hardwoods, with White Ash, Black Ash, Red Maple, Sugar Maple, White and Yellow Birch, Alder, Aspen and the occasional Beech Hawthorn trees border the entryway into the forest, which is something we love, because in Ireland the Hawthorn is known as the fairy tree.
