FIELD TO PLATE

The Retreat Café is proud to be a 100% Scratch Kitchen, featuring Handcrafted Artisan Food. Our menus are seasonal and our Executive Chef, Angelo Camposarcone, and our Master Gardener, Colin Lundy, are committed to working hand-in-hand to grow and develop produce that makes its way “from our field to your plate” for guests to enjoy!

CRAFT PARTNERS

We support our community by sourcing from small and local businesses like us! When you dine at Strathmere you are experiencing the best of what the local culinary community has to offer. From all natural, roasted coffee and homegrown honey, to the best of Ontario’s wine and beer, our chefs hand select every ingredient in order to curate a fusion of healthy and mouth watering dishes that are sure to awaken your palate.

HOMEGROWN

Working under the direction of Colin Lundy, Strathmere’s accredited Organic Master Gardener we grow “ecologically” following organic growing principles. We do not use pesticides or chemicals in our fields and gardens. Crops and fields are rotated so some fields lay fallow. We use mulches and living pathways to conserve soil and water, and cover crops and green manures to build and protect the nutrients in the soil. We apply composts and aged manure to recycle nutrients and activate the soil, and maintain wild grassy areas and diverse flower gardens.
