Cori Doern and Annabel Slaight opened the doors to ClearWater Farms at Cori’s Café this Victoria Day weekend. Volunteers were instrumental in bringing the vision of the farm from the drawing board to the community and to the family dinner table.
Cathi Shanahan, Realtor® Royal Le Page, volunteered to design the space and she created the perfect atmosphere. Subtle elements from the Reed Farm are cleverly interwoven throughout. Carpenter Ken Illsley, transformed old doors, windowpanes, picture frames and wood from the barn into the perfect pieces to display fresh food from the farm and Cori’s cooking. Even the old barn door beside the upright freezer has a beautiful welcoming patina. Asad Rahman, a Refrigeration Expert in Keswick also donated his time and expertise to the cause.
The Café is light and bright and filled with enticing aromas. Staff moved through the crowd with samples of Cori’s signature dishes like Curried Chicken Salad and the famed Clearwater Tomato Basil Soup.
Michael Wilson, a ClearWater Farm Technician was on hand to answer any questions about the ClearWater Weekly Food Basket program. A full share will feed 3-4 people for $35/week and ½ a share will feed 1-2 people for $25/week.
When food is made in harmony with the surrounding land, water and people it simply tastes better. ClearWater treasures water, use it wisely and works with Mother Nature. Taste the difference and experience what farm fresh is all about.
