Homesteading Weekend is Back!

Back by popular demand for 2017, we are looking forward to the 2nd annual Homesteading Weekend. Join us on November 10-12 for this special experience package where we combine our love of locally sourced ingredients with our love of cooking to create a truly local culinary experience for our guests. A trip to the Farmer’s Market, a cooking class with our Chef and a specially created 4 course meal combine to create this unique experience – Source Local, Shop Local, Eat & Drink Local.

The day will get started with an early breakfast followed by a group trip to the Peterborough Farmer’s Market in Memorial park. We will have a guided tour and will learn about the local providers and products available. Guests will get their own lunch from the selection of vendors at the market. Choosing the best and freshest ingredients we can find, we will return to Elmhirst’s Resort for a fun afternoon and evening of activities surrounding cooking and eating. What could be better?

After such a busy day, our guests will have the opportunity to congregate in The Hearthside dining room for a relaxing evening featuring a 4-course meal “Market Style” – created to feature some of the best finds from the Farmer’s market combined with some Elmhirst’s Own products.

To cap off the weekend, our guests spend the night in a private lakefront cottage and can join us for our famous Sunday Brunch buffet. All told, this package will be a great opportunity to learn about local products, meet new friends and dine on some delicious dishes.
