Herma’s News – County Road 28 Trip Itinerary, Picnic Shopping List, Canada Day

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. —John Lubbock

Join Herma and Gordon in the Studio along with Margaret and Janis in and around the Cheese Shop this Saturday between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a special event involving strawberry themed appetizers meant to inspire for summertime entertaining.

We believe a drive-up County Road 28 just north of Port Hope will guide you to some really special places including gorgeous Lavender Fields (Laveanne) and an outdoor art gallery which offers Canada’s most comprehensive and eclectic collection of Zimbabwean Stone Sculpture (ZimArt). Both destinations would be a lovely place to enjoy picnic foods purchased at Herma’s.
