The treats at Rosebank cottage are always a delicious bonus.
The little picnic area on the edge of Lake Lawson has a stunning view...More
We are so glad we took the time to stop and tour this phenomenal farm. The docents are in period costume, but more interesting was the fact that they are truly working the farm, not just actors playing a part.
This is the original farm...More

The out-of-the-way setting is perfect. Not only is it tremendously scenic with panoramic views across the rolling...More

There is a restaurant called Pheasant's Pantry, not far away. Have not eaten there so can't comment. At Ross Farm, they only offer coffee, cookies and if I remember correctly, there was a fridge with bottled water, etc... More
There is a restaurant called Pheasant's Pantry, not far away. Have not eaten there so can't comment. At Ross Farm, they only offer coffee, cookies and if I remember correctly, there was a fridge with bottled water, etc. Packing a picnic may be your best bet..
