At Eclectic, we believe that using high quality local ingredients picked at their freshest make for the best tasting dishes. We believe in supporting the amazing Orillia area local farmers who produce these delicious ingredients. It's about building relationships and celebrating locally grown and produced goods. Supporting Orillia area local farmers and producers allow us the opportunity to know where our food comes from, it invests local money back into the community, and has shown to reduce our environmental impact. We are proud to be an Orillia restaurant & caterer who supports the hard working & talented farmers listed on this page.
Local food matters!
Julia Child has the best quote " You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces- Just good food from fresh ingredients".
Please read on to see some of the hard working farmers and producers we here at Eclectic are excited have rewarding relationships with.
Located in beautiful Oro-Medonte, Ontario, The Fifty Acre Garden features locally grown vegetables, herbs, teas, and cut flowers. We use intensive gardening techniques and permaculture philosophies to work wisely and in balance with nature. We only use organic approved methods, and never harmful pesticides or insecticides.
Here at The Roost, we offer up farm raised food that tastes like it should and opportunities to enjoy the pleasures of country life with a familiarity that calls you home to roost. Purchase meat or fresh vegetable boxes, visit our summer farm market, or take a stroll through the maple bush. There’s a little bit for everyone at The Roost.
Quaker Oaks Farm is a family run business, and farm animal sanctuary, in the Kawartha Lakes region. Our name, is derived from a pacifist Quaker upbringing and the strength of the mighty oaks that have grown here on the farm forever, thus strength in pacifism. At Quaker Oaks Farm we choose to keep animals in trust that they are family. We are fortunate to have the ability to live a lifetime with those we can afford to shelter.
Our family was born and raised at Riverdale Farm in downtown Toronto. Judy and Mark met there, where a job became a passion and a passion became a dream, and a dream became reality, and reality became a business with compassion.
Welcome to Quaker Oaks Farm!
Lavender Hills Farm is located on twenty-five acres just outside of Orillia in central Ontario. In addition to the existing hardwood and softwood forests, we now have a tallgrass praire that we planted in 2007. Every year the praire rewards us with an ever increasing floral display that contributes as a valuable resource for all our bees and other pollenators in our home yard.
We have additional bee yards in Muskoka, Oro Medonte, Ramara and Severn townships and also pollenate the cranberries at Johnston's Cranberry Marsh in Bala.
As local producers, we harvest and sell our award-winning honeys and handcrafted cosmetics, candles and soaps that we make at select farmers' markets near us.
Aquatic Growers produces amazing aquaponic produce year round in Severn Bridge. If you've had any of our salads before, you've had their greens & they consistently meet our high expectations. Scott's produce is second to none, so click on the link to check out their website or visit them on Facebook.
Meet Your Farmers!
Greetings from the veggie patch! We are Wolf and Leda and the only thing we love more than growing veggies and eggs for our community is EATING THEM OURSELVES. We hope you can taste the difference in our local organically-grown and foraged produce, preserves, and fresh eggs. This is our little family's passion. PayDirt Farm was established in 2017 in the Beautiful Hogg River Valley of Georgian Bay. Because soul is in the soil.
