S. Hunter & Son Catalogue Excerpts

- Item Type
- This catalogue contains the various types of flowers and fruit which Samuel Gordon Hunter produced for sale at his Scotland farm. These excerpts, selected by Margaret Hunter, represent his favourite items.
The Hunter family is an early, prominent Scotland family. Samuel Gordon Hunter first came to Scotland with his first wife Emily in 1869. He was a horticulturist and established his farm in the village. The farm primarily grew the flowers that he sold for a living; he was particularly fond of dahlias. He also kept bees, and raised chickens, cows and geese. During the winter, he would often walk from Scotland to other communities such as Paris and Simcoe to take orders; in the spring, he would bicycle out to deliver the flowers.
