There are three pairs of white columns bordering the farm at the corner of Concession 2 and Line 1. They are grand, if slightly decayed, and hint at a more noble era. Many of us have passed them by regularly over decades or longer, and some of us might have wondered at their significance.
The property is currently part of the Epp family farm. Scott Epp provides some insight into the land and the columns. “The property was owned by the Canadian Canners Company. That’s who we bought it from. They were a big fruit canning company,” says the third-generation farmer. “As for the pillars, I believe they were fancy boundary markers.”
