this 74-acre farm is located at the base of the Blue Mountains in Nottawa, Ontario, just 2 minutes outside Collingwood. they currently have 12.5 acres planted of hops, with over 18 varieties, fed by the waters of the Pretty River. They are a family owned business that prides itself on as little processing of the hops as possible, in order to maintain high oil and flavour content. they dry at low heat and use a unique whole leaf pelletizing process that preserves the oil and lupulin, as compared to the pellets from the Pacific Northwest*. Craft brewers and home brewers, brew in small batches for the same reason we dry and process our hops in a small batch way. It delivers a richer more flavour full beer! You may have to adjust your recipes to accommodate this type of increased flavour. But, rest assured it will be worth it!

It was the arrival of the railroad in 1855 that cemented Collingwood’s worth as a centre for shipping and shipbuilding, since the rail line offered the ability to transport goods, materials and people easily and efficiently through the Great Lakes and points west. For 103 years, Collingwood built lake freighters, corvettes, minesweepers, barges, ferries, ice breakers — anything that could sail on the Great Lakes and beyond. All of the ships were all launched sideways, usually about 12 noon. Expect to see numerous exhibits at the Museum showing Collingwood’s ship-building history, Petun First Nations’ culture and our transportation heritage. The museum is in the Railroad Station on Huron Street and St. Paul, footsteps from the harbour.

Four hundred and forty-five million years ago, The Town of The Blue Mountains was submerged under a most unusual sea. This Ordovician Sea was not at all like our modern deep ocean basins. It was extensive and shallow, probably warm, oxygenated and sunlit. These factors combined to make the perfect environment for one of the world’s first species of animal to flourish — the trilobite. Trilobites enjoyed a long history of scavenging the bottom of our ancient sea, all this happening approximately 250 million years before the first dinosaur walked the earth. Ideal geologic and atmospheric conditions allowed for fossilization of these creatures, giving us the unique opportunity of viewing these ancient inhabitants of our area.

The Depot owes its existence to Sir Sandford Fleming, Canada’s celebrated railway engineer. In 1872, Sandford’s father, sold a parcel of land to the Northern Railway for the purpose of constructing a station for the community. By 1880 a handsome station with the very newest architectural design, a rounded turret, opened its doors to the whistle of the locomotive and promise of prosperity for the community. In a direction quite unforeseen by the Flemings, the little station became the hub of ski trains from Toronto in the early 1940’s, and planted the seeds for what was to become Ontario’s premier ski and four season recreational destination. On September 21st 2008 the Craigleith Heritage Depot reopened their doors as a community heritage interpretation centre and tourism office.
A growing demand for artificial light led to the establishment, in 1859, of plant called the Craigleith Oil Shale Works to obtain oil through the treatment of local bituminous shales. The enterprise, the only one of its kind in the province’s history, failed by 1863. The inefficiency of its process made its products uncompetitive after the discoveries of “free” oil at Petrolia and Oil Springs, near Sarnia. A commemorative plaque can be found at the Craigleith Provincial Park off Highway #26.
