Eat, Drink and Be Merry
Terra Cotta Conservation Area is home to beautiful wildlife, scenic trails and many exciting events, including Brews in the Bush on August 26. This event will be hosted at the beautiful Maple Hills Pavilion, where guests will be taken to and from via wagon ride.
Similar to Brews on the Bay, which we hosted at the beginning of July, we’re once again partnering with local businesses to bring a unique experience to our guests. Discover who will be there and how they’re connected to nature.
The perfect combination: tacos and beer. Guests will be served a taco feast by local Chef Phil DeWar. Phil is connected to the Credit River Watershed. He grew up in Orangeville and enjoyed many activities including rowing and biking at Island Lake Conservation Area.
Professionally, Phil likes to spend time in nature as a way to let down the pressures of the kitchen. He appreciates the importance of having a balanced and healthy ecosystems to support the food supply chain as he notes, “food comes from the ground.”
To wash down the taco feast, GoodLot Farm & Farmstead Brewing Company will be featuring their top-selling beers in a flight of four. GoodLot’s farm and brewery is on 30 acres in Caledon and is owned and operated by Phil and Gail Winters. They state their purpose is to, “build and play together so that our community is connected to each other and to the land.”
GoodLot employs several strategies to achieve carbon-zero, including avoiding the use of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, rotational livestock grazing and nitrogen dense cover cropping. They appreciate the connection between the community and the natural environment and take action to protect it. GoodLot owner Phil Winters will be at Brews in the Bush to talk about all things beer.
Guests will also be entertained by local artist Joe Burns, who is a singer-songwriter from Guelph, Ontario playing folk rock alternative.
