A Headwaters Foodie Après

Whoooooooooah! Winter Lock Down Alert!

At YDH, we love visitors, but we also want everyone to enjoy winter safely during COVID-19. During lockdown, it's important you and your family stay close to homewhile taking the opportunity to explore all the wonderful things to do in your own backyard. Don't know what's in your own backyard? Visit ontariotravel.net to re-discover some pretty cool activities all over the province while supporting your local businesses and communities. If you are lucky enough to live in YDH (we are biased), we've got some great ideas for you to hibernate in style, get active outside, learn something new and celebrate this awesome season...virtually or in-person.

Remember safety is a choice you make and we look forward to seeing non-locals again soon.

Please check with all businesses for updated hours of operation, programming, COVID-19 policies, and restrictions.

After a day on the slopes, we’re sure your couch and cozies are calling! Stock up in Headwaters for everything you need for a classy spread of Après-Ski delights. Next door to Dufferin’s premier ski and snowboard destination Hockley Valley Resort is the award-winning (and totally breathtaking) Adamo Estate Winery. Pick up some bubbles, decadent estate reds and crisp, floral whites – don’t forget to check out Adamo’s well-stocked pantry goods, too – marinated olives, antipasti, crackers and estate honey are all perfect additions to an après cheese platter.

While you’re in the area, swing by Am Braigh Farm’s roadside store for ready-made soups and shareable dinners made with local produce by local chefs. In Orangeville, the queen of cheese (and pairing advice – just ask!) Christine Patton of Fromage will help you choose cheeses, meats, spreads and crackers to keep your Adamo goodies company – heck – she even sells the boards and platters! A few doors down, you’ll find impressive, delicate and tempting desserts at Le Finis – we recommend getting a few different types of Gateaux to share amongst your bubble buddies!

Finally, be sure to stop by Caledon’s newest bottle shop and brewery, Sonnen Hill. This small family-run, on-farm brewhouse produces fresh, pale beers with character (and modest alcohol content) – pick up a few bottles to share a taste of Caledon among friends!
