Unique PEI Experiences

Prince Edward Island has an abundance of dazzling nature, rich history, and delicious homegrown cuisine. With so much to explore there are many ways to Experience PEI hands-on with the locals that know it best! Whether it’s by harvesting your own dinner or constructing the sandcastle of your dreams, here are some of our favourite ways to experience the Island from the inside out.

 

Experience the true meaning of Field to Fork 

Witness your evening meal transform from the fields of Prince Edward Island to your plate! Start off your interactive dining experience by helping to create artisan bread featuring locally grown black garlic. On the way to dinner at The Table you’ll make many stops, including an organic vegetable farm, Green Gables oysters and Hope River Farm. Throughout the journey you’ll get the opportunity to meet and speak with the local farmers that help cultivate the delicious local delicacies that will fill your plate.

Back at The Table, you’ll enjoy a fresh meal filled with the local ingredients you witnessed being harvested. Dinner is served on a large harvest table, surrounded by friends old and new, in a converted church overlooking blossoming farmers’ fields. Sounds pretty perfect doesn’t it? Learn more here.
