Strom’s Farm welcomes organizations and groups to our family farm. We have an on-site market & bakery and acres of outdoor space to experience.


With careful cultivation, a farmer’s field will be without weeds, stones, and rough terrain. With the same careful attention, a team can eliminate personal politics, communication barriers, and unhealthy interactions. Farmers have always known that growth takes place from the ground up. Teams can grow together in the same way.

Does your team need to cultivate some fresh perspective and plant some healthy seeds of promise?

Bring them to “From the Ground Up!”
an innovative team building exercise at Strom’s Farm in Guelph.

This amazing event will feature the “From the Ground Up!” team building experience, an interactive debriefing time, lots of fresh air, and a country mile of fun.

“From the Ground Up” invites each team member to become an employee of the Korning Korporation. They will work together in navigating the pathways of Strom’s 5 acre corn maze, striving to overcome obstacles along the way to achieve their mission.

The event will also include interactive debriefing time facilitated by Martti Pajunen from IGNITE Leadership, wagon ride farm tour and a bakery snack.
