Join Chef Ben in the back forty for the ultimate culinary experience!

Each session will have a seasonally inspired menu, highlighting gourmet local & 100% Canadian items.  You’ll start your adventure out on foot and make your way out to the back of our farm, at the edge of the forest.  The trip is about 20 minutes in length!

At our ‘bush camp’ you will find our prospector’s/military tent where our chef, Ben, will be concocting up a bountiful 9 course menu for you, a crackling fire pit with benches, and beautiful views of the surrounding fields.

Throughout your time at the bush, feel free to meander through the trails, sit by the crackling fire pit, or watch everything Chef Ben & his sous chef are doing to prepare the perfect outdoor meal. Enjoy the company of our guests in a safe, physically distanced experience. You’re welcome to learn as much about cooking with fire from our experienced chef and ask as many questions as you like. Or just simply enjoy some fresh air and quiet time as the sun pokes through the trees. 

9 course Chef Experience Menu

Our menus change with the seasons, so we can make the most of local, in season ingredients.   While we want to keep some elements of surprise around the menu, we can tell you that our chef has worked hard to beautifully highlight only the best locally sourced ingredients.  You can expect to see tomahawk steak, heritage breed chicken, an elevated version of everyone’s favourite Canadian classic, poutine, & much, much more. 

The experience consists of 9 courses, 7 of which are cooked either over an open fire, or on the stove in the prospector’s tent.  Everything is prepared right in front of your eyes, from scratch.  Included in the experience is also 4 different alcohol pairings. 

This is a 19+ event.
