The Log Farm - One of the Areas Hidden Treasures

(Theme 5 – Food, Theme 9 – Recreation, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: The Log Farm

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing Seasonal


The Log Farm, one of the areas hidden treasures, is a replication of what a family farm was like in the mid 1800’s in Ottawa. This is 110 acre oasis located right in the middle of today’s busy city. This farm was settled by the Bradley family and together Abraham and his wife Matilda raised nine children on this farm.

The focus of the farm is to give visitors a sense of what day to day life was like for the Bradley family. That may be a casual self guided “tour through time” to just enjoy the sights and sounds of the farm animals and see all the different building on the homestead. How they managed with eleven people in a five room house is just one of the things to marvel at. There will also be opportunity for hands on participation in the day to day farm life. Whether that is feeding the animals to tending to the family garden or working on the many fences that surround the property.

The Log Farm is a Historical farm site. Traditional Sugar Bush. Farmers Market. Walking trails. Pumpkins and local vegetables.

Location: 670 Cedarview Rd, Nepean, Ontario
