You can tour the grounds of a beautifully restored 19th century Meaford farmhouse today.

Riverside Farm was built in 1843, and has received a Grey Bruce historical designation award for restoration work done by Jim Bruno.

The farm is home to Ted and Joan Brown, and is located on the 13th sideroad along the Big Head River.

The Brown family added three big additions to the property, and brought the once dilapidated original farmhouse back to life.

Marjorie Davison was born at Riverside Farm, and is helping out the tour by providing a short film and stories about the early days of the farm.

In addition to touring the property, you can check out a pair of bi-planes and take a carriage or paddle boat ride, as the Big Head River runs right through the property.

There will also be a silent auction with many unique items to bid on, and all the proceeds of the tour and auction go to the Meaford Hall and Culture Foundation.

The Riverhead farmhouse event runs today from 1 PM until 6 PM.

Tickets are 100 dollars, and you can get a 75 dollar tax receipt.
