Our Name: When we purchased this incredible little slice of paradise . We learned a lot about the propertys history from both the previous homeowner and neighbours. It was first built in the 70's and more than 10 years ago, the entire property was apparently all cleared. The home owner immediatley before us was a nature lover and sought to bring back the native plants and trees, and animals. He succeeded by planting 100's of different types of trees, and letting the natural shoreline replenish itself. The rewards are so appreciated . We had heard there was a huge Willow tree on the property that blew down before we bought it, I would have loved that as I have fond memories of a big Willow at my grandparents farm. At the time it collapsed, the owner and taken as many cuttings as he could and literally Johhny Appleseed them all over the property. Although we no longer have 1 beautiful big Willow, we do have dozens of small ones thanks to the conservation efforts of the homeowner before us. Willow Bay has its name from the actions of someone who truly wanted to conserve the area in a natural setting for all.
Our goals are to provide the best value of products without compromising our beliefs of high quality organic materials, that are sustainable and good for our environment, while providing a platform for you to get to share in what we do with tips, videos, and recipes.
