You can only get a perfect peach pie in Niagara. The secret? Fruit that’s picked late in the season, equal parts crispy and juicy. A crust that’s flaky and delicate – and it must be served warm. A scoop of vanilla ice cream never hurts.
Cassandra would know. She was born and raised in Niagara and although her post-secondary education and career took her to all corners of the globe, she’s right back in Niagara.
It wasn’t just the peach pie. Cassandra had a laundry list of reasons to come back home, including the cost of living and the strong sense of community, access to nature and locally sourced food. Her favourite weekends are spent browsing farmers markets and chatting with local vendors. Cassandra looks forward to giving her kids the same connection to their food and nature that she has.
The Niagara region is a part of Ontario’s Greenbelt. At almost 2 million acres, it’s the world’s largest permanently protected greenbelt and works to keep farmlands, forests, and wetlands safe and sustainable.
