Horses, Pumpkins and Plenty of Pie in Halton

This month brought with it the inaugural Harvest Halton festival, held October 6th at Country Heritage Park near Milton, Ontario.  The festival brought together local chefs, wine makers, brewers and farmers to celebrate the bounty of the region.


 Despite the thick fog slowing settling in the air, folks from Niagara to Oshawa and everywhere in between flocked to the heritage inspired grounds of the park. Kids played with the horses and parents sipped on local wines and craft beers while hard working chefs prepared a feast for all the senses!

Our favorite tastes of place included warm apple tarts from Paradiso, whole lamb grilled on a spit by Chef Tobias from Red Canoe Bistro, heritage pork pate on an heirloom purple potato salad from Compass Restaurant and the new Wet Hopped Ale from Nicklebrook Brewery.


The event was also the official launch of the brand new Pumpkin Trail–a self-guided, mapped event celebrating this year�s harvest. The Halton Region Pumpkin Trail runs for the month of October, connecting and promoting the fabulous array of fall products in Halton Region.

You can find them on Facebook ,Pinterest  and on Twitter : @HaltonTourism  #Haltonpumpkintrail.  You can also enter their seasonal pumpkin contest (details below).
