Hi my name is Rick Branderhorst and I am the manager of Windmill Family Campground. Over the years I have done many different things. My wife and I owned and operated a farm and also during this time I worked in construction. In 2004 we sold the farm and started a new business selling cheese, mostly to schools and clubs all over Ontario for fundraising. This business expanded over the years to include a retail shop and café. We sold the business in 2016 and while signing the final papers for the sale of the business Matt mentioned he had bought a campground and wondered if I would consider managing it and here we are today!

My wife, Jennifer, and I have raised 5 children who all have helped out at the campground in one way or another and we now have 7 grandchildren. Family is very important to us and we want that to show in the way we manage Windmill Family Campground.
