Attached to the side of the main house is a passive solar 28ft long greehouse, which is currently home to many fig trees.
Mounted on the house roof is a 48 PV panel 10KW Microfit system complete with inverters and separately metered grid tie in.
This PV solar installation is subject to an Ontario MICROFIT contract which pays .805 per kw.
A lovely steel roofed board and batten barn currently is setup for ice wine production. There is also an attached smaller building which closes for up the secure storage of agricultural inputs.
Ample space to store or maintain your tractors and equipment can be found in the large concrete floored Coverall style building.
For seasonal help there is also a two bedroom premanufacted home.
