Scotsdale Farm

At Scotsdale Farm, you'll have lots of room to hike, enjoy a relaxing picnic, or just get away from it all. A working farm, Scotsdale presents visitors with 215 hectares (531 acres) of pastoral countryside. Superb hiking trails run through the farm's rolling hills and woodlands. The Bruce Trail and the Bennett Heritage Trail cross the property, offering hikers hours of scenic enjoyment in this Niagara Escarpment park. (The special natural heritage features of the Niagara Escarpment prompted the United Nations to designate the escarpment a World Biosphere Reserve.) Scotsdale Farm was bequeathed to the Ontario Heritage Trust by Stewart and Violet (Letty) Bennett in 1982. Bennett had developed Scotsdale into an internationally renowned breeding farm for his Arabian horses and shorthorn beef cattle. As part of Digital Doors Open, explore this magnificent property through the video below.
