Theresa Sherwood, Secretary
Four years ago, Theresa Sherwood began visualizing a new future for her family farm – a beautiful 70-acre picturesque, rural property here in King Township. Sherwood Farm was originally a thoroughbred race farm, with a stately Georgian home made possible by a successful family business. The retreat concept evolved from having hosted family business group retreats at the farm during the 90s. Prior to starting the retreat venue, Theresa researched other venues and met various wellness practitioners through both networking groups and participating in classes. Theresa’s husband and a wonderful network of practitioners and contractors really helped bring the ‘vision’ to fruition. Since 2016, Sherwood Farm has evolved into a serene Private Event Venue and Retreat where ‘Wellness’ is the keystone for reflection, renewal and revitalization. Optimal clientele are specialists, facilitators and practitioners who coordinate small group retreats such as yoga, art, health and wellness and so forth. The venue also hosts an annual “Handcrafted Gift Sale” in November to support local artisans

Her group of caregivers share in Hospall’s vision and mission. They believe that trust and compassion are integral components in hiring a care provider.

Their objective never changes: providing the highest degree of care to all patients and the utmost focus on quality of life for all.
