Get Yourself To South Pond Farms For Brunch This Summer

It doesn’t get any more farm to table than this � yes, that’s right U-Feast is taking you right to the farm for a #FeastOn certified escape of epic proportions!


Meals at South Pond Farms are served family-style in the refurbished barn. Chef Kevin McKenna sources ingredients from the region and supplements with eggs, herbs and vegetables the crew grow themselves.

We’ve partnered with South Pond’s Chef Kevin McKenna and the tremendous team at Thornbury Craft Cider for this locally focused feast. Everything (and we mean everything) will be made from scratch, on site and prepared specially for this unique experience.

We recently had the opportunity to drop in on Danielle French, owner of South Pond Farms. While the property is usually only accessible during weddings, events and workshops; on Wednesdays in the summer, Danielle and her team open up for farm-gate sales and casual lunches.


For Danielle French, South Pond Farms is a labour of love. She uses as much homegrown products as possible — which includes all the flowers used to decorate the epic harvest tables in the barn.

We were there to try their new signature butter tart, part of the Canada 150 Collection available on the Butter Tart Tour.

The tart is made from 100% Ontario-grown ingredients, including locally milled rye flour for the gluten free crust. The crisp shell is then filled with custard-y maple filling, candied bacon and Cross Wind Farms cheese curds. It’s a surprisingly good combination!

The unique mixture of sweet, salty and savoury elements in the South Pond Butter Tart was delicious!
