Welcome to Lionel’s Farm – a haven of rich farmland, brimming with a diverse range of farm animals, and steeped in the traditions of love, care, and community engagement.
Lionel’s Farm began as a dream; a dream rooted in an unyielding love for farm animals. Over the years, this passion evolved into a sprawling farm, housing an array of animals from the playful to the serene. It’s more than just a farm; it’s a testament to Lionel’s dedication, a place where memories are made, and where the old-world charm of farming comes alive.
In 1950, Lionel Purcell, then a Real Estate Agent, purchased a farm in north Scarborough. In 1956 Lionel Purcell married his wife Rita White, employed at a real estate office in downtown Toronto. Together they began managing Lionel’s Farm.
In 1981 they bought and moved to their current location. The farm continues to be a labour of love. With the help and dedication of their 4 children; Carrie, Mark, Blair and Holly (Mike) and two grandchildren; Blake and Kathryn; it has expanded into a more diversified family owned and operated business. Based on a love for farm animals, Lionel’s Farm continues to bring joy and happiness to many an age group. We take great pride and pleasure in making your visit and dealings with Our Farm memorable and lasting.
From the gentle mooing of cows to the excited clucks of hens, every corner of our farm has a story to tell.
