The story

Baby Blocks – This board and batten home was constructed in 1840 and features bargeboard trim. Here, Fred Sheppard, an artist and true eccentric, lived without hydro, plumbing or a furnace. In 1995, Winter Wheat, a lovely shopping experience, was established.

“Surprises abound around every turn down the garden path. Chainsaw carvings, uniquely decorated with recycled scraps of wood, metal and found objects. There are places to rest and relax… visitors speak quietly, smile at strangers and… take their time. It is a place of absolute delight and joy.”
