Our Mandate is a simple one......to " Help Protect and Steward Scotsdale Farm"
We will use this page to keep the public up to date with what is going on at Scotsdale Farm,
along with providing everyone with important information.
Over the years, the farm has been a popular spot for film shoots,
which have included:
The Recruit, Fahrenheit 451, Taken,
Reign and more recently,
Mrs. America, A Handmaid's Tale,
Forgive Us Our Trespasses,
Beacon Street, The Accused,
Rabbit Hole, and many other
Please follow us on Facebook to get regular updates of farm and film activity.
Parking on the 8th line side would also be a good way to access the property when Hollywood is on site!
Although, we try to keep Scotsdale open to the public during film shoots, it is important to pay attention to the posted signage, and park only where permitted.
We are getting popular!
Over the past week we had 1338 web page visits (here), and 4216 social interactions!
On google views (google business)
Oct. / Nov., we had 9815 visits!
Scotsdale Farm is a beautiful, calming place to visit, so making it accessible to the public is very important to us!
Open public areas continue to be an important part of our daily / weekly mantra ........a wonderful way to de-stress ourselves, and our families.
The hiking trails managed by the Bruce Trail Conservancy are all in great shape.
The CVC and BTC also have a
"pets on leash" policy to be observed.
With the winter weather coming, it is important to dress accordingly.
The trails can get slippery when
the freeze up begins too!

Things have been busy around the farm this summer / fall, as various projects wind down. The barns have now been completely rewired, along with some updated plumbing.
The chimneys, and stone work at the Bennett House, cottage and garage have also been restored and repointed......good for another 100 plus years!
Another section of the stone wall at the south side of the Bennett house has been completed, and a new roof is being planned for the house too.
It appears we have a beaver colony setting up a lodge at the pond which will be a first for Scotsdale.
As beavers tend to be nocturnal, a sharp eye early morning before sunrise....you may catch one in action!
Groups using buses, and oversize vehicles must also observe the
Parking is only permitted in the designated parking areas. When full visitors can access the property from the 8th Line.
