Wooler/Stockdale (25 min drive/20 km)

My two favourite places are close by each other: Dahlia May Flowers and Brambleberry Berry Farm!
The Most Beautiful Flowers! I love 💕 the Mason Jar Arrangements. Worth a drive and better yet, is less than 10 minutes from my other favourite place, Brambelberry Farms. Check out Dahlia May's Instagram - the most beautiful flowers and pictures!

OMG! I love this place! Open mid June to September, this Berry Farm has Pick Your Own Strawberries, Raspberries, Sour Cherries, Blueberries and sometimes Potatoes and Broccoli. I always recommend that you call and listen to their daily message just before you go to find out if they’re open or sold out and what berries are available to pick.

Great local market just south off the 401 at Wooler Road. They have apples, corn, tomatoes and other vegetables they grow. There is also a chip and burger truck in their parking lot in case of needing a snack!

Campbellford (25 mins away/25 km)

Any trip to Campbellford means stopping at Empire Cheese - always- and to Sharp’s for a gratifying grocery experience . If craving bread or sweets, a trip to Dooher’s! The best homemade donuts ever (closed on Sundays).
Go for the cheese! 🧀 My favourite is caramelized onion cheddar. This is a co-op for the local dairy farms. Best Cheese Ever!

Family Owned Grocery. They have a great selection of food, meat and produce, often local. I love to pick up their 12 inch tortillas for wraps.

A Local Favourite however I prefer Vito’s for Pizza. Jimmy’s pizza is thicker crust and more cheese.

Amazing Buffalo Ice Cream! This family farm is very involved in the local community and food fair such as the Incredible Edibles Festival and of course the Water Buffalo Festival! They also offer guided tours of the farm - book 24 hours ahead. I haven’t been on that but it sounds like fun, especially for kids. Store is called the Buff Stuff!

Nice patio on Oak Lake for Breakfast. Last time I was there , they only had Eggs Benny on a Sunday because of Covid so I’ll have to go back summer 2022! Nice Sandy Beach for small kids. I believe it is private and there is a small fee.

Willow Creek Farm has a special place in my heart as this was where Sally was born. Sue and her family own and operate this local farm and grow everything from asparagus in May to strawberries in June and then sweet corn, tomatoes and all other wonderful veggies. They also sell local baked goods and frozen meats. It’s about 10 minutes east of Frankford on Frankford Road.
