Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

Last night was an amazing night hosted by Savour Elgin at CASO Train station in St Thomas. Our low ticket price included a complementary wine glass to take home as well as 14 tickets to use at the various vendors throughout the lovely restored historic train station.


We were able to sample many local inspired dishes created by some of the best chefs in the area. We were also treated to a beer and cheese sampling from The Railway City Brewing Co and Monfore Dairy.

 

In addition to the excellent food there was a number of local wineries and beverage producer BlackFly.

 

We were also treated to a great preformace from Matthew and the Birds outside under the tent while we could browse the many silent auction items. Which were all beautiful prepared and included tickets to the Grand Theatre, one night stay at One King West in Toronto and a gourmet dinner for two at the historic Coyne House in St. Thomas. As well as many hand crafted Bountiful Elgin Baskets from local producers such as Berry Hill Fruit Farm, Empire Valley Farms, Ferguson's Fancy Beans, and Steed & Co Lavender Farm from Sparta.

 

Below are a few pictures I managed to snap in between trying all the great food and chatting with all the local chefs!

John Mairleitner and the Tall Tales Cafe

And no culinary experience to Elgin County is complete without trying one of John Mairleitner from the Tall Tales Cafe's amazing pies. He made miniature versions for FreshFest which had local peaches and the lightest crust ever.
