Welcome to Barnswallow Place
The picturesque community of Elmira is home to Barnswallow Place Community. Nestled in the horse-friendly heart of Mennonite country and just north of Waterloo, this warm, welcoming community of 96 people is known for its bright, close-knit atmosphere. During the warmer months, relax with family and friends in our enclosed courtyard which shows off our thriving gardens, or visit the nearby St. Jacob’s Farmers Market – the largest year-round farmer’s market in Canada. In colder weather, the focus turns indoors with plenty of opportunities to remain active with a variety of programs and events.
