There is a place near and dear to our hearts which we are excited to share with you. It’s a treasure we have nurtured and cherished throughout the years at Bloomfields. This special place is Sandyhill Farm.
Purchased at an auction in 1975 and driven by a desire to live closer to nature - Wendy and Bert made this their home along with sons Jamie (co-founder of Bloomfields) and John. This historic Georgian home with three acres of prime farmland is a charming hidden gem this side of Prince Edward County.
The old stone house, built circa 18oo, has architectural detailing of times long past- a Rumford fireplace, post and beam ceilings, deep panelled windows, and Norfolk hinges. Wendy and Bert took up the challenge to restore their newfound home, preserving the natural grace of the house. After decades of work, their labour of love is a truly enchanted walk through history- appointed with antiques, books to feed the curiosity, art to captivate the soul, and often filled with the aroma of freshly baked bread.
