📸 by: h.cecchetti on Instagram

You are what you eat, so it’s important to treat your body like a temple.  What’s true for the body holds even more true for the soul.  Have you ever evaluated what your ‘food groups’ are or what your soul food is? Situated in a land of forest and water, a place of rest and refuge, and a hub of fertile farm land, Harrison’s soul food means:

Holding Still

Practicing stillness is a venerable art in many cultures. Sit on one of our beachside benches and drink in the views as you recharge your spirit.

Going Natural

Take time to be outdoors. Connecting with the elements quiets us enough to hear wisdom and intuition.  (For more details, see February’s post.)

Connecting

While solitude can be therapeutic, we also need community. Giving and receiving are, equally, healing.

Body Food

The word ‘foodie’ conjures up images of eating in an upscale restaurant, or a blogger speaking in lingo. The true definition is, simply, someone who appreciates real food.

Discover your inner foodie by visiting our local farms, learning where our food comes from, embracing the slow-food movement, and enjoying farm-to-plate foods.

Cheeses made right in front of you, antioxidant-packed and vitamin-rich vegetables and fruits (we are talking about heirloom tomatoes, garlic, corn, raspberries, blueberries to name a few!), real and natural honey from bee hives, freshly-picked hazelnuts, dark-roasted artisan coffees, happy and free-roaming hens, and so much more.

Whether by foot, bike, or car the best way to experience our farm scene is through our self-guided Circle Farm Tour.

 

Suggested Farm Stops:

Back Porch
Dan & Lynda invite you to visit their pottery & basketry studio, or watch coffee being roasted in a circa 1919 Flame Roaster. Head out to the barn for antiques, collectibles, and other home or garden décor items. Character buildings, chickens, goats and vegetable gardens create a welcoming experience.

Farm House Natural Cheeses
A certified organic farm producing a wide variety of grass-fed artisan cow and goat milk cheeses, butter, and yogurt. Watch the cheese-making process through the viewing window and be sure to visit the animals.

Earthwise Society Agassiz Farm
Take a tour of this certified organic farm, explore the garden and trails along the Miami River, and shop for fresh local produce.

On July 21st, we honour the slow food movement with the Agassiz Farms Cycle Tours – a 30 km flat, countryside route! As an added bonus, a shuttle service is available to collect your purchases and bring them back to the registration area, so you can pick them up when you are done for the day.

Come for the night, wake up early and jump-start your day at Muddy Waters for breakfast, tour our farms, take in a hike, and end your day dining at Harrison Corner Café, Morgan’s Bistro or, our new Greek restaurant, Milos Taverna!

Your body and soul were designed to act as one. Nourish it well.
