Hutchinson Maple Syrup is a family-owned and operated maple syrup farm. Orval, Doug, and Michele, with the help of their family, turn the maple sap that flows from their hardwood maple bush into sweet maple syrup to share with you! In 1974 Orval Hutchinson began producing maple syrup in Oro, Ontario, using cast irons pots with only 200 taps. From 1975 to 1988, Orval with the help of his family and son, Doug, expanded to 800 taps and moved his operation into a sugar shack with a wood-fired evaporator. Fast forward 23 years later, when Doug and his wife, Michele, purchased a sugar bush on the 5th Line North of Oro-Medonte, it wasn’t long until the evaporator was once again fired up. In 2012, Orval, Doug, and Michele began making maple syrup as a “hobby”. Because they love to share their sweet maple syrup with everyone, Hutchinson Maple Syrup has grown from 300 taps to over 1600 taps with the maple sap flowing through their gravity pipelines and, of course, into buckets.

Saskia and Hans Sloeserwij arrived in Canada from Holland in 2008. As they adjusted to their new life in Canada, they found themselves missing the European style cheeses they grew up with. Back in Holland, Saskia and Hans created amazing cheeses using local ingredients and traditional European processes, but they couldn’t find similar products in Canada. They felt like the Canadian market lacked “authentic, traditional, European cheeses”. In an effort to fill a gap in the market, Saskia and Hans took it upon themselves to create those cheeses that they missed so dearly, calling their new business Say Cheese. Say Cheese uses the same process for its sheep cheese as is traditionally used for making Gouda. Their sheep cheese is produced as a medium firm cheese which is similar to the Dutch Gouda.
We’re proud to offer the highest quality, truly pasture raised meats you can trust to buy. From our family to yours, we put lots of love and careful attention in each item.

Here at Elsie’s Creek Farm, Quality and Flavor are our number one concerns. A typical maple syrup season starts around the end of February where our family plugs the drills in, cleans out the lines, and taps over 1200 hardwood maple trees at our farm. From then until mid April, our natural wood fired evaporator does not stop turning the sap we collect, into award winning liquid gold maple syrup. After being filtered more than 16 times, through gravity fed filters, the maple syrup is tested and then bottled. After this long process it is ready to enter your home and be poured over pancakes, oatmeal, or any breakfast food for that matter. Although there are a lot of long days and nights spent in the sugar shack, our satisfaction is met through the comments we receive after a bottle of maple syrup is opened. Carl and his wife Rebecca started producing maple syrup in 1999 and have since expanded their operation to over 1200 taps, raised two sons who intend to expand the business further, and have won over 20 top place ribbons at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. Together as a family, we attend farmers markets in […]

Location & History The The Severn Public Library is located at 31 Coldwater Road, in the middle of Coldwater’s business district. From our front windows, we have a superb view of the old gristmill with the Coldwater River flowing past. Library services in the village date back to the 1800’s when this was an Indian Village called Gis-se-nau-se-bing (cold river) and lending books brought from Scotland were kept in the Indian Agent’s home. Several other village locations housed books before the present library was built in 1937, as a memorial by the Sheppard family, to their parents Wm. Sheppard and Mary Ellen Buchanan. An additional two rooms were added in 1986-87, one being the Foster Meharry Russell Reading Room, a memorial gift from the family of this former Coldwater newspaper owner. In 1994 Coldwater became part of the new Township of Severn . The Severn Township Library Board now operates this library.
