We are BIG supporters of local food and art. We appreciate the talented folks who grow our food, make our wine, beer and cider, and who creatively contribute to the PEC culture through their arts and crafts.
This year – we are pleased to support County artist Niall Eccles – author and artist behind “Character Of The Day”. Niall has designed our 2014 Terroir Run limited edition t-shirts. These two handsome devils are modelling the t-shirts which come in 5 bright colours!
We are also thrilled to support a new County venture – Green Peach! Co-founders Erin DeMille and Jennifer MacKenzie are creating beautiful everyday lifestyle collections inspired by PEC’s natural beauty. One lucky runner will be winning this gift prize handcrafted by the Green Peach duo.
With less than 3 weeks to go to our 3rd annual PEC Terroir Run (there is still time and space available to register HERE) we are excited to announce some delicious new additions to our event! With our run starting an hour earlier this year at 9am, we anticipate some of our runners will be zipping to the finish line within the hour and we want to ensure that everyone is hydrated and well nourished and no, there won’t be any bananas or crappy bagels to greet them there.
In the spirit of creating a true sense of terroir and a great escape for our runners, we’ve partnered with several Prince Edward County businesses and events to bring you a fabulous weekend!
We made it to the tractor at Rosehall Run Vineyards only .5km to the finish line!
Hello keen runners and dear friends,
It’s hard to believe it’s February 2013 already! We’ve had many folks reach out to us recently to ask “When’s your run this year?” and “When can we register”? We’ve got great news – it’s May 26th and registration is now live on Eztix!
From the Farm Cooking School Director Cynthia Peters just can’t get enough of “Spring Greens”. From the first buds to the luscious lawns blanketing the rural countryside and villages of Prince Edward County, it’s a true awakening. And for our palette, we begin the passage of “tastes” of seasonal produce from our farm fields. Thanks to Vicki Emlaw of Vicki’s Veggies, green comes early. Cynthia had the opportunity to start enjoying fresh salad greens in late April. With their hooped covers, Vicki’s Veggies were able to produce a wide variety of Asian greens, spinach and arugula. Today, Cynthia helped harvest some fresh asparagus at Honey Wagon Farms and some garlic greens. Herbs are popping up everywhere and her lovage plant is already over a foot tall!
