Canadian Chef Educators

We were so fortunate to host this year's Canadian Chef Educators Conference in picturesque Waterloo Region.  Chefs from across Canada gathered to experience the local flavours of Waterloo and see the bounty of the region.  One of the most interesting visits of the weekend was at Flora Lane Produce in Elmira.  Stuart Horst (our host and the owner/operator of the farm) showed us his amazing tomato growing operation.  Once being a large dairy operation, the farm is now specializing in tomato greenhouse growing and distribution.  A truly worthwhile visit as their farm also has a small store on site featuring other local wares and produce.
