On Tuesday we headed over to Kentville for an appointment, and then took a leisurely drive home. We found ourselves on Hwy 221 (don't let the word "highway" fool you...it's a meandering 2 lane road). It was time to think about lunch, and John spotted a good prospect.
Dempsey Corner Orchards has a tea room, fruit and veggie market, gift shop, pick your own orchards, kids fun zone....and general all round appeal.
The lunch menu is small, but the food was delicious (we went for the crispy chicken wrap).
Lots of fresh fruits and veggies from the farm, and preserves, syrups, and oils for the cook.
The main floor and the upper loft are filled with items for the "Piece for Peace" gift loft...filled with crafts from the world's destinations that need lots of help.
After some browsing and shopping (I couldn't resist a hemp hat and a very special t-shirt...more on the t-shirt later) we sat down for lunch in the tea room.
