Thyme Again Gardens in Harrowsmith Magazine
Not quite an island, there is still a sensation of leaving the big city behind when you cross over the Trent-Severn Waterway canal to what locals warmly refer to as The County. Prince Edward County is a place where so many seek respite from the hustle and bustle of city life—via summer vacation, second-career aspirations, quaint retirement or simply coming home after seeing the world. Here, people come to get away from it all, putting down roots as they discover that everything they truly need is right here. Perhaps that's why all things local—especially food—is flourishing in this picturesque community, just two and a half hours outside of Toronto. So much so that some of Canada's top chefs and restaurateurs are setting up shop in The County, drawn by its promising terroirs and deep sense of community.
