This weekend had us heading out to explore another of Halton’s Conservation areas: Mountsberg. This one has a raptor centre which houses birds of prey that you can learn about and see up close including falcons, hawks, eagles and owls. There are also hiking trails and a lake. It was nice to walk around and see the birds.
After the park, we headed over to Springridge Farm to have some lunch and pick up some fresh-baked goods and fruit. We brought home a strawberry rhubarb pie, 6 tarts (2 each of: wild blueberry, cherry, butter tart) and some blueberries. It had a really nice market and gift shop plus a whole area for kids (which we didn’t partake in). In the shop, we bought a few additional items: cranberry fig port sauce, maple balsamic vinaigrette, peach jam and strawberry rhubarb jam. They had LOTS of yummy things to choose from. Lunch was delicious as well and we enjoyed it on a nearby picnic table. My sandwich was a ham and brie with apple and red pepper jelly sandwich – fabulous. 🙂
