My husband and I moved to Fergus Ontario in 2010 to a 90 plus acre farm. We made an agreement that I would not work for two years and focus on the farm. During that time I got to go back to what I enjoy, cooking using fresh and local ingredients. It was during this time that the recipes for the maple roasted nuts was conceived. We came upon a local nursery, Green Barn, that specialized in trees that were adapted to our climate. So my husband and I with the help of the local nursery planted 100+ trees. We chose to plant a variety of fruit and nut trees and each year we will continue to add to the orchard.
