More about Springridge Farm
The Hughes family has been fruit farming for over 160 years, spanning six generations. John, Laura, Amy, and Tom all work at Springridge Farm, while Sarah still helps out part-time on busy weekends. Laura learned most of her baking and preserving skills from Jane Hughes, John's mother, who passed down many of the recipes that are still used in the bakery today.
In 2017, John, Laura, Amy, and Tom were officially recognized as a "Canada 150 Farm Family" for their commitment to advancing agriculture in Halton Region. Springridge Farm grows strawberries, pumpkins, and gourds, and harvests honey from one million bees that reside in hives beside the pond. They also work with their farm friends to provide fresh Ontario produce (depending on the season) in the barn market.
Back in town, grab a bite to eat at one of Milton’s many contemporary restaurants offering fare from finger-licking chicken wings to upscale Italian pasta. With its proximity to six of southern Ontario’s most striking conservation areas, it’s easy to turn a day at Springfield Farm into a week enjoying Milton and the surrounding region.
