Sir Andrew Macphail was known to have parties with a variety of guests, including L.M Montgomery, Earl Gray, Stephen Leacock, John McCrea, and many more. To keep this tradition alive, Chef Joel Short created a menu for our cook Linda Hunter. The Veranda Cafe’ allows guests to have a taste of the Macphail’s Scottish background and produce grown in our own gardens.

Homegrown Goodness

Sourcing local is important to us! Our huge garden is harvested daily to bring you the freshest seasonal ingredients – as the season progresses so our ingredients in the salads and desserts change too. We grow chemical free, and experiment with various homesteading techniques such as companion planting. Please feel free to roam the gardens and check out what our gardener is up too.

Our fresh veggies, herbs, and flowers – and our freedom to experiment – would not be possible without the generous annual donation from Vesey’s Seeds Incorporated. Their excellent product and large variety add interest to our  gardens and plates.

Neighbouring businesses that we partner with to provide more local goodness:
Orwell Corner – Chicken, Turkey and Pork
Tailor’s Meats / KJL – Ham, Sausage, Bacon
Visser’s & Sons – Potatoes
