Paulette and Rennie Sparks are the owners and developers of Wild Country Gardens, Rennie homesteaded our property and all the work put into our farm has been completed by us right down to clearing the land. Our plan was to build something that we could use for retirement income and still enjoy it as our paradise. In doing this we have developed an atmosphere that is visitor friendly which is so peaceful and amazing to see. We have one of the largest variety of fruit trees and berry bushes and vegetable gardens which we harvest yearly. Our newest venture is growing herbal mints and herbs which we use for making leaf teas.
