Santosha Organic Farm & Lodge

Welcome to Sprucedale

We are partnering with Santosha Organic Farm for lodging and meals at their beautiful year-round retreat. Situated on an old Finnish homestead, on the traditional lands of the Anishinabek and Mississauga Nations, the property is a mix of field, wetland and forest, along with a one acre market garden which can be seen along their main trail. Meals will be crafted based on using whole, nutritious foods, while using as many vegetables, fruits, and herbs from the farm as possible. Other local products, such as honey, maple syrup, wild-crafted goods, and more are incorporated. Most dietary preferences can be accommodated. 

A summer's day meal example:

Breakfast - homemade maple granola with Niagara peaches and yogurt/yogurt alternative, quiche with roasted peppers and fresh herbs

Lunch - quinoa and wild rice salad, kale salad with roasted beets and seeds, lentil salad & a small sweet treat

Dinner - roasted organic chicken, caramlized onion potato salad, garden salad with a maple mustard dressing and cucumber salad with crushed ginger and garlic.
