About Us

Bob-&-CathyThis website actually features two separate businesses, Windbreak Farm Bed and Breakfast & Windbreak Farm Woodworks.

Both are owned, created and run by your hosts: Bob and Cathy Hutson.
Windbreak Farm Bed and Breakfast came into existence in ‘2012 when Bob and Cathy decided that after 23 years of renovating their century old farm house, it was just too large and too beautiful to keep all to themselves. With their three children raised and moved on, the “empty nest” was ready to be occupied once again by those who would enjoy it’s traditional ambience. Cathy’s background with the tourist industry in Northern Ontario lent itself well to creating a successful accommodation business.

Windbreak Farm Wood Works was established in ‘2004 when Bob was looking towards his retirement from a 31 year career as a professional in the field of education. While finishing up in that area, Bob was also busy studying the fine art of cabinet making at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. Having grown up with a love of building and working with woods, he honed the skills passed down from his ancestors and learned to create his own masterpieces.
Our two labours of love have now grown and become a constant source of enjoyment as we meet and satisfy our customers here at Windbreak Farm.
