Ceresmore Farms Limited Doors Open Clarington

Ceresmore Farms Limited

John and Maria Rickard emigrated from England in 1847. Their son purchased the home farm here in 1866 – named Ceresmore for the Greek goddess Ceres (also the root of “cereals”). Jim and Don, fifth-generation Rickard farmers, currently farm 1,200 acres for seed. During Doors Open, visitors will be able to explore the seed cleaning plant, the historical home and barn.
