Food, Glorious Food!
We pride ourselves on serving quality food and pay special attention to our meals.
- Tastefully prepared lunches are served on all our tours!

- We are the only company that grows some of our own organic food as well as purchasing (and supporting) produce from locally grown farmers.
- We don’t skimp on quality. We use real maple syrup, butter and good coffee – the same quality food we eat at home – why in the world would we serve our guests stuff like margarine or Aunt Jemima’s syrup on our trips?
