Explore nearly 400km of lakes & rivers along the Trent-Severn Waterway when you escape to one of Ontario’s most beautiful regions. Enjoy locally-sourced cuisine at Feast On certified restaurants and tour unique, award-winning ground-to-glass craft breweries, wineries, distilleries, and cider mills.
In Kawarthas Northumberland, we have a proud heritage of brewing and wine innovation. Our vintners and brew-masters create award-winning beers, wines, spirits, and ciders. Pick your own, sample a local brew, or have it all.
Plus, in case you hadn’t heard – we’re also home to the Butter Tart Tour. Come have a little “Tart To Tart” experience along the biggest culinary tour of its kind in Ontario!
For something a little different, stop by South Pond Farms in Ponty Pool and enoy one of their signature farm lunches before wandering the cedar groves on the property. If you’re lucky, they’ll have some of their fantastic home baked bread available to take home with you.
Did you know there are wineries in Kawarthas Northumberland? We recommend Rolling Grape Vineyards. In the summer months, they sling a mean pizza on their sunny patio which pairs perfectly with their orange wine!
The very best butter tart in the region is at Doo Doo’s Bakery in Baillieboro – and that’s not just us saying so! Diane and her team have won dozens of awards at Taste-Offs, Fairs and other competitions.
For family friendly accommodations with a side of delicious food – like their Angus Beef Burger – plan to stay at Elmhirst Resort.
For dinner, book yourself a table at RARE in Peterborough and plan for the Chef’s Tasting menu. It’s a delight!
