" We loved the tour so very much! Mark knows exactly how to explain important facts in easy words and then keep them in memory forever! Even for 6&9 yo (but for adults too..) He is so passionate about what he's doing there, we were impressed and left with warm feelings and memories! Great place to spend your day, learn a lot and see wonders of nature! Their Maple syrup tastes awesome, minerals are stunning, and people there are kindhearted and knowledgeable ♥️"

" Our family had an amazing day at Greenmantle Farm. Our sons (7, 9 & 11) hung off Mark’s every word as he gave them an entire semesters worth of geological knowledge in just a few hours. Walking the property and learning about geology and minerals has to be one of the highlights of our summer. Such a beautiful place and many of the formations we saw were one of a kind. If you are lucky enough to be in the area you should definitely book a tour here."
