Discover Prince Edward County’s sunsets, wineries, barns and rural life. It’s only a few hours east of Toronto along the 401. Take 401 eastbound and then hang a right on Wooler Road which brings you to Route 33 – also known as Loyalist Parkway. Head south along 33 and stop in to enjoy the various villages which offer lovely Bed & Breakfast Inns, wineries, fine dining, boating, and sand dune beaches.

I only discovered Prince Edward County 4-years ago. I would take the 401 mainly to Montreal but never ventured down route 33 until several years ago. It’s almost an island to itself – both geographically and historically. Getting there is typically much quicker than going north to Muskoka and Georgian Bay. I sometimes take Hwy. 2 (Old Kingston Road) on the way there and back to drop by towns like Brighton.

I enjoy visiting some of the farms in the county. My most favorite is EverDale Farms in Bloomfield. I always stop by to meet with one of the owners and discuss agricultural matters and whatnot. Everdale farms supplies vegetables and dairy products to the public. They have a stand on the highway which offers fresh produce. They have a barn here which houses Jersey Cows which are well taken care of – as if they were family.

Prince Edward County is a  getaway from the big city hustle and bustle with its country charm and rural atmosphere. There is a certain hospitality that makes anyone welcome in this area which is at a slower pace than much of the world.
