What Defines Us


The rugged landscape of Muskoka was settled more than a century ago by men and women who were determined to build a new life. When our founder’s family carved out a homestead in 1862, a stones throw from the towering forests of what is now Algonquin Park, they were driven by a pioneering spirit that continues to this day.

Surviving by their wits and strength, as farmers and lumbermen, the family developed a fierce love for the land and a strong tradition of hard work; values that remain at the heart of the company.

For all of us at the Muskoka Roastery, our deep connection with Muskoka demands that we participate actively to preserve this legacy for future generations. We donate our time, services and at least 1% of our sales to grassroots groups who share our passion and values.
