The Roost is a charming family farm with a storied history, peaked on the top of the hill in Dalrymple, Ontario. Purchase meat or fresh vegetable boxes, visit our summer farm market, or take a stroll through the maple bush. There’s a little bit for everyone at The Roost.
We carry fresh seasonal produce, freezer farm raised meat, honey, maple syrup, farm made preserves and local artisan gifts and products.
The Roost is more than just a farm. It is a homecoming. We love the outdoors and all that country life has to offer. Farm tours are available by request, and our trails are always open to visitors.
In 2018, we planted our first acre of Chinook hops. These mature plants had a very successful growing year, despite the drought-like conditions in the planting season. We can’t wait to see the fruits of our labour in the 2020 growing season and look forward to expanding our hopyard to support the demand of our local craft beer industry.
Long before The Roost was The Roost, the Stewart family has been making sweet, delicious maple syrup on the farm. We’ve scaled up operations over the past two years to include gravity lines and a larger evaporator, but we still have a bush full of pails and boil in open-air, wood-fueled evaporators. Our syrup is pure sweet goodness with that mild smokey flavour of traditional maple syrup.
