Waterdown is a Community in Hamilton, Ontario, that is located on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. Waterdown is quickly expanding with 6500 more houses to be built in the near future. Although Waterdown is growing and has a lot of newer developments, there are several buildings that are historic and remain since the founding of the Town.
The Hekman family have been fruit farming for over 40 years. In 1995 they migrated from PEI and purchased a horse farm that they transformed into Frootogo.
They planted the dwarf tree apple orchard and pumpkins. As they continued to concentrate on the fall season and orchard they added in a scratch bakery and the play park.
