The heart of Prince Edward Island is community. We are truly blessed to live among friends and neighbours who care for and support one another in all aspects of life. That also means using local is what we do. Not only because it is part of the fabric of our life here but because it provides our guests with only the finest Island products. As any number of our guests will tell you, the food just tastes better when you know the person who grew or caught it. We couldn’t agree more.
Below is a list of our trusted and valued partners and neighbours. If you get a chance while you are on the Island, stop in and pay them a visit, you won’t be disappointed.
