A new group has been formed keep the public up to date on any developments linked to the former Windfields Farm land in Oshawa, Ontario and to pay tribute to the birthplace of racing great Northern Dancer.
Windfields Farm ceased operations in 2009, having already sold off portions of land to the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and Durham College, and to housing developers. Some of the barns as well as the gravesite of Northern Dancer were to be preserved, but these plans have not yet come to fruition and the future of these historic gems remains uncertain.
Elizabeth Ross, Diane Stephens and Marianne de Gannes have taken on the responsibility of sharing with the equine and local community all that is transpiring with the property by attending Oshawa council meetings and meeting with their staff. Their goal is to provide clear, accurate information on all things related to Windfields, the old farm. They have also been conducting some research into the history of the buildings.
