Connect with the land like a local! Port Hope farm visits give you the chance to learn from the farmers themselves. We don't mind rolling up our sleeves and getting our boots dirty – or sharing the work.

Visit our historic Farmers Market to meet more local producers and sample fresh-picked fruits and vegetables, and homemade tarts. Or hit the road and take the Fresh Food Guide Tour

Come find your bliss at Laveanne Lavender Fields where more than 10,000 plants explode into a purple haze in the summertime at this country farm. Breathe in the soothing scent of lavender, nature’s cure-all, when you walk the rows or meditate in the labyrinth. Try a morning yoga class among the blooms and visit the studio for house-made natural body care creams, pure essential oils and culinary favourites like macarons and lavender-ginger honey.
