Our blog is chock full of great ideas for fun things to see and do in York Durham and Headwaters. We are always adding new content and updating old posts, but sometimes you might stumble upon something from our vault. If this article has inspired you to hit the road, be sure to double-check that the featured stops in this post are still welcoming visitors.

Come and enjoy a wander down ‘A Country Path in Spring where you will meet a Miller by the pond, Cider and wine maker in the orchard, roam a little at the Organic Beef Farm, smell the flowers in the garden of the country Herbalist, and there’s a Potter, a Bee Keeper, a Pumpkin Farmer, and Cider maker all waiting to greet you with unique stories.

The smell of the wood-fired bake oven will be the first thing you notice as you arrive at Tyrone Mills. Step back in time and view a historic water powered “Mill in motion”. In 2021, they are celebration 175 years. A great stop to pick up pantry items, preserves, but take time on the patio to enjoy a baked-while-you-wait cider doughnut or try to pick just one flavor of hand-scooped ice cream!

Just a short jaunt down the road at Archibald’s Orchard and Winery it’s all about apples! Apples fresh off the tree… pressed into cider… baked into pies… fermented into wine & hard ciders and a complete apple market for your Spring picnic like local cheese, chocolates and chutneys. In late Spring, the apple trees will be in full pink blossom -have your camera ready!

Further along ‘A County Path’, meet the farmer at Gallery on the Farm where they encourage people to return to their roots of using grass fed beef and for those who are not familiar with the various cooking processes of certain cuts they sell and offer a quick over the counter cooking class that matches their purchase. An integral part of the on-farm store are local artists that products from honey, cheese, pottery, jewelry and lavender items.


Across the Enniskillen Valley, the herbologist at Timeless Essentials may greet you from her Spring garden. You will be amazed to see the clean and colourful glycerin soaps, oils, bath and body products and more. We like her Facebook page for pointers and positivity!
