from our farm to your table…

 

In an effort to be truly farm to fork, we grow much of our own produce and supplement from other local growers, farmers, and markets. From the hands that planted the seeds to the hands that present your plates, we strive to create meals we would share at our own dinner tables and that we are proud to serve you.

Our thanks to all of the hardworking farmers who provide us with fresh, Southwestern Ontario produce, dairy, and meats: Stemmler’s Meats, Elora Farmers’ Market, Gerrie’s Farm Market, Flora Lane, Craigmeadow Keig, and more…
