While we’re sad to see fair summer go, autumn brings with it new and delicious experiences across the province. Take the time to explore the unexpectedly delicious corners of this province; places like Oxford County! Read on for the season’s best events and activities to add to your autumn bucketlist.
1. Eat delicious cheese along the Oxford County Cheese Trail.
The rolling country sides and beautiful farmscapes make fall the ideal time to get out on the Cheese Trail. Book a cheese factory tour, try local cheese menu items, get lost in a corn maze and so much more.
2. Cozy Up with a Cajetta Latte
While fall is synonymous with pumpkin spice, may we recommend the cajetta latte from The Olde Bakery Cafe instead? This latte uses a goats milk caramel which gives a not-too-sweet twist to your regular latte. Plus try their new veggie wrap during September featuring cheese from Bright Cheese & Butter.
3. Try the Curds at Mountainoak Cheese
Have you heard? Mountainoak now makes curds and they’re fantastic. You’ll be drooling over the ones with black pepper!
4. Bite into a Fresh Apple
5. Feast On House Made Cavelli Pasta at SixThirtyNine
If you’re popping into Feast On Certified SixThirtyNine in the next little bit, be sure to take advantage of their delicious cavelli pasta while it lasts! Using handeck from Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese, this pasta also features walnut pesto, king oyster mushrooms, kale, carrot puree and carrot crumble.
