Farms connect us to our rural legacy and provide beautiful landscapes to inspire visitors.
The Sweetest Smell on Earth: A Canadian Maple Experience
Journey to a corner of the diverse Carolinian forest for this exclusive, interactive experience on a farm owned by seven generations of the same family. Richardson’s Farm & Market is tucked away in the rural landscapes of Haldimand County. Learn about how sap is made and connect with nature on a tour of the maple bush.
A new stay-at-home experience will help you and your family tap your own trees and discover how to make your own maple syrup through a Backyard Maple Syrup Making Package available through Richardson’s Farm & Market.
Events on an Organic Farm
At Shared Harvest Community Farm and Educational Centre, environmental stewardship and social responsibility are the name of the game. The farm grows organic produce in sustainable ways to protect the land, air, and water. Come out and enjoy some special events held annually on the farm.
Also ask about the Weed and Feed Nights – get dirty by helping weed an organic field while learning about soil and nutrition, and then enjoy a vegan dinner.
Picnic on the Grand River
The Carolinian Café and Eatery offers its own farm-grown meat and produce, local fresh greens, and seasonal fruits. Its picnic experience offers a custom order of a perfectly packed picnic for two including a trail map to the Grand River where you and that special someone can take in the natural beauty of the quaint hamlet of Cayuga. Or take your basket to Ruthven Park National Historic Site and enjoy on the beautiful grounds of this stunning location.

Learn to Cook from Twisted Lemon’s Chef Dan
Before Twisted Lemon Restaurant was even a glint in the eyes of owners, Dan & Laurie, they were sharing knowledge and educating hungry fans from near and far from the comfort of their very own kitchen. Now, more than 10 years later, Chef Dan’s demonstrational cooking classes fill the private dining room in the restaurant and sell out in a day when the new schedules are released.
