Meet the Farmers

Farm Manager

Sylvia Dixon has over 40 years’ experience working with horses and other farm animals, including cows, sheep and goats.

Sylvia is the Vice President of the Canadian Young Event Committee, a board member at the Canadian Sport Horses Association (also runs their Development of the Young Horse program) and a board member at the Ontario Horse Trials Committee.

Sylvia currently operates the Beasley family farm in Schomberg, Ontario where she continues to train horses for various competitions including show, jumping and dressage.

At Far Enough Farm, Sylvia is responsible for overseeing all farm operations and for ensuring that all animals receive excellent care at all times and that their enclosures are maintained to an equally high standard.

She is also responsible for overseeing the breeding of the animals, most of which are born at the Schomberg Farm and then transported down to Far Enough Farm in Spring/Summer.

Far Enough Farm Supervisor

Lindsay Dorian has been working with animals for most of her life. She began riding at the age of seven and competed on the Ontario hunter/jumper circuit for over 15years. 

Lindsay studied zoology at UofT and spent several years working with wildlife rescues, both at home and abroad, in northern Australia. She has been a caregiver for a variety of species including farm animals, reptiles, native songbirds, parrots and even kangaroos!

At Far Enough Farm Lindsay oversees the day to day care and feeding of all the animals, as well as providing enrichment and fun activities for both the animals and visitors.

There are a number of farm hands working at the farm to aid the Farmers with their duties and to answer questions from visitors.
