The name says it all, From The Farm, but the woman behind this amazing Prince Edward County cookery school in her restored 1830’s farmhouse, is the star – our friend and Slow Food activist, Cynthia Peters. Cynthia will be familiar to many as a food writer and personal cooking instructor, but if you haven’t heard of her school, you will as although it’s new to the County it is already generating a lot of excitement in our community. On May 29th Cynthia will be working with Vicki’s Veggies Spring Greens and seasonal ingredients from her garden to create the salad to accompany Johannes’ (Norman Hardie Winery Manager) Alsatian inspired pizzas. Both will be served with a selection of Norman’s award-winning wines, and Barley Days Brewery beers. We can hardly wait, two weeks and 10k to go!
If you are making a weekend of it, and want to experience Prince Edward County more deeply, Cynthia invites you to join her for a morning of County cooking and local lunch before you head to Picton’s historic Chrystal Palace for the 6th Annual Terroir event! Details:

Although May 29th’s Terroir Run is about people who love to experience the “sense of place” of a region through 10k of gentle country road, local wines and seasonal ingredients, we still need to ensure that all precautions are taken for our runners’ safety and comfort. To this end, and literally at the end, we’ve arranged a Follow Car to warn motorists that they’re approaching our participants and just in case someone needs a break or simply wants to ride-in to the finishline. When we thought about who would make a great finishing partner we were contacted by our local brewery, Barley Days, to see how they could support our Hillier event. We are pleased to announce that their big, blue beer truck will be following our runners to keep an eye on everyone so we all arrive at Norman Hardie’s lunch safe and sound. They have even gone a step further to offer samples of their brilliant ice-cold beer to accompany our woodoven pizza and Vicki’s greens lunch along with Norman’s award-winning wines. We are thrilled and also want to remind anyone who’s making a “County Weekend” of the run by coming early for the 6th annual Terroir event that Barley Days ownership group also has accommodations at the Waring House, the beautiful Claramount Inn, and the County’s best breakfast joint at their Picton Harbour Inn. Special thanks to Chris & Nora Rogers for their ongoing support!
