Farm to Table Dining

The culinary experience at Elmhirst’s Resort offers the best of the Kawarthas with many ingredients in our dishes grown locally, raised locally or sourced from our very own 240 acre property, including our Elmhirst’s Own Angus cattle raised on our family farm. We pride ourselves on environmental sustainability in every aspect of our operation and strive to use resources respectfully while always looking for new ways to ensure the land’s continued majesty. You will taste the difference!

An introduction to our wine list

In keeping with our commitment to the ‘farm-to-table’ concept, our wine list reflects the effort of producers and farmers that are as close to us as we can find, predominantly from Prince Edward County and Niagara. This wine list is evolving and changing, reflecting wines that we find identify as an exemplary statement of both the winemakers’ craft and the grape variety. All our wines are VQA; we are proud to offer you the very best wine that this region produces. The following selections have been chosen with care by our hospitality team to enhance your experience and complement your meal.
