Vineland, Ontario

The village of Vineland is an unincorporated community in the Niagara peninsula. It’s location between the shores of Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment provides a micro-climate suitable for the growing of grapes and other tender fruit. Vineland’s crops include apples, peaches, pears, cherries, plums and apricots as well as many varieties of grapes. Vineyards and wineries dot the countryside making Vineland a one day tourist destination for many Toronto residents. Vineland’s biggest event is a large craft fair that takes place over four days on the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, with vendors selling their wares on the Main Street and at Balls Falls. Many of the residents of Vineland are descendants of the original German immigrants, who pioneered this region in the mid 1700’s. A centuries-old Mennonite cemetery is located on the corner of Regional Road 81 (former provincial highway 8) and Martin Road.

 
Due to the warming effects of Lake Ontario, many types of tender fruit can be grown here.
